Civilian Avro Anson C.19

The Anson saw lengthy service with the RAF and FAA during and after the Second World War. The aircraft performed coastal patrols, training and supported the Air Transport Auxiliary in moving pilots around the country to deliver new fighters and bombers to their units. The example attending the static park and Air Tattoo 2016 is now owned and operated by BAE Systems.
