Hastings TG527


TG527

TG527

Here's another strange one, whilst at Colerne working in A.S.F. mooching across the hangar to the bog, caught by chiefy for having hands in my pockets (that's what fairies are trained to do so they don't get electrocuted) I have a job for you, he said waiting for the next offender to appear. Next day we are delivered to the Handley Page hangar, given a bucket each and some wet and dry paper and invited to rub down all the leading edges of a Hastings that had flown through a hailstorm, dents as big as tennis balls everywhere. I think the job took us a fortnight.

 

I feel that this a/c would have been scrapped but it had just been fitted with Blue Silk Doppler radar, and lots of pretty lights all down the spine and across the wings.

 

Question is what kite was it, I have a feeling it was TG527,which was earmarked for preservation when shown at Abingdon6/68. later scrapped there ?
