The bulk of this aircraft is 4X-FNA of the Israeli Air Force. Originally operated as WM366 with the RAF's 39 Sqn, she destroyed an Egyptian Ilyushin Il-14 troop transporter during the Suez Crisis. She was saved from a desert scrapyard, but unfortunately a large part of the aircraft was rotten. The nose wheel section came from WM234 (NF.11), the rear tail section from Biggin Hill's VZ462 (F.8) and the outer wings and other pieces from WD220 (NF.11). Quite a composite!
