After service in WWII in England, Sri Lankan James Peter Obeysekara bought a 1947-built Autocrat and flew her via 31 stops and on a 103 hour 30 minute journey home (London to Ratmalana). Damaged beyond flyable repair in a fatal training takeoff accident (instructor and student pilot killed) in 1971, the fantastic SLAF museum technical team has brought her back to pristine static display condition.
