HISTORY

1940-1941
G-ANMV (T7404) was built by Morris Motors at Cowley in 1940 as construction number 83745, handed over to no.15 Maintenance Unit (MU) at Wroughton on 12th October 1940 and put straight into storage.

1941-1948
On 14th. August 1941 she was sent to No.26 Elementary Flying Training School (EFTS) at Kidlington, then on to no.10 Flying Instructors School and later to no.8 EFTS at Woodley. The aircraft stayed at Woodley until December 1948 when it went to Barton near Manchester.

1948-1954
T7404's last RAF Unit was no.22 Reserve Flying School at Taversham from 19th. June 1951 until 16th. December 1952 and after six month's storage at no.20 MU it was sold to Mr A J Whitmore, an aircraft dealer, and registered as G-ANMV on 22nd. January 1954.

1954-1969
A year later the aircraft was exported to France as F-BHAZ and for several years was operated by the Aero Club de Royan.

1969-1986
The aircraft returned to the UK in 1969 and was used by Norwich and Norfolk Flying Club and the Compton Abbas Flying Club, until purchased by Tigerfly in 1986.

Since beginning her current role of commercial trainer for Tigerfly, who own and operate her, she has flown over 5000 people and given them the special feeling of flying in one of Britain and the world's greatest aeroplanes.
