Title: Eventual fate of PR.XIX PS888 ?
Post by: ericp on February 10, 2009, 06:59:06 PM
Does anyone know of the eventual fate of PR.XIX PS888 ?  I've seen a picture of it looking a bit forlorn on flat tires in front of a hangar. but does anyone know if the airframe still exists ?

Thanks !

Sold to Thailand became U14-25/97. Instructional airframe for Directorate of Aeronautical Engineering from 21/6/54. SOC 26/4/55 scrapped. Suspect the photograph is of it in Thai markings. The orginal RAF roundel can still be seen in front of the Thai roundel even though it has been painted over.
