    Avro Anson MK1 MH-120, is the only wartime Anson in flying condition, the other two a MK19 and MK21 being post war examples.

    It is painted to represent Aircraft 'B' of No. 206 Squadron RAF. It was built in 1943 at A.V. Roe & Company's shadow factory in Yorkshire and also served with the RAAF.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks pbailey68, there are only three flying examples, two in the UK and now this one here in NZ - I hope it's here to stay after its ten year restoration.
