Unusual looking Hastings


TG502 only ever used in experimental and research work, 502 was a Mark C1 when built, it had the tail plane lowered to the C2 configuration and was converted to a C1A with underwing fuel tanks, Boscombe Down was its home for much of its life, sent to St Mawgan for fire training in 1972

A photo here in 202 squadron livery http://aircraftslides.com/auction/images/8bb5cacAircraft%20Slides%2059%20-%207%20jpeg.JPG

565 had a probe on its nose when with A&AEE  'cloud and collision RADAR' trials, looks like she carried this until her demise
