Lysander on takeoff from Old Warden

By Kako
This aircraft was originally registered V9552 when delivered to the RAF before shipping out to the RCAF in 1942 soon afterwards, where it was used as a target tug.

After various changes of ownership/appearance, in 1999 it was painted black and various additions made to resemble a Lysander III S.D (Special Duties) aircraft as flown by 161 Squadron , RAF on clandestine night ops inserting and retrieving agents in occupied Europe from RAF Tempsford and RAF Tangmere between 1942-45.

Currently owned and flown by the Shuttleworth Collection from Old Warden, Bedfordshire.
