Percival Pembroke

The Percival Pembroke was a high-wing, twin-engine light transport aircraft which entered service with the RAF in 1953, replacing the Avro Anson.

A Pembroke C(PR).1 variant was also produced to perform a photo reconnaissance role by No81 Squadron during the Malayan Emergency in the late 1950s.

The example displayed at RIAT 2012 will carry the markings of the last RAF Pembroke operator, No.60 Squadron, which was based at RAF Wildenrath, West Germany, where she remained until March 23, 1987. The aircraft will be on display in the Air Tattoo's Cold War Zone.

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter
