Hastings TG503


TG503

This one is still a survivor, residing in the Berlin Aviation Museum, I guess this could be deemed as the last flight of a Hastings! http://www.planeboys.de/images/GWW%20AirlineFotos/tg503/tg503_abflug2.jpg  rather than TG517 to the Cosford Museum

On 11th March TG503 left the UK for a proving flight to Australia and New Zealand, this tour lasted 17 weeks and as a result the New Zealand Government placed an order for four C3 Hastings powered with Bristol 737 Hercules engines (More powerful than the 101 or 106 series).
