Hastings Marks


The following are/were 'types' of Hastings:

C1/C1A

These were the bulk of Hastings ordered for service, 100 in total with serials from TE580 [first two were prototypes] intermittently to TG624

The C1A brought the type up to near C2 standard

C2

Production commenced in 1950 with a further 42 Hastings having a longer range and a different tailplane configuration

C3

4 ordered by the RNZAF

C4

4 ordered to VIP standard 

MET1/T5 

10 MET 1's were converted from C1's and operated out of RAF Aldergrove, upon which were subsequently converted to T5's as used by SCBC, these aircraft were modified by Airwork Services Limited

G-AGUB looked like an overstretched Hastings with a tailwheel but in fact was a HP Hermes PW943/VX234/G-AGUB which was scrapped at Pershore in June 1969 outliving most of the Hastings aircraft
