Avro York C.1 – s/n MW185

With Air Charter from Sep 1952 to Mar 1955

Very little in the way of detailed, historical information survives for this aircraft and her actual arrival date with Aviation Traders is not known. Her exact date of entry into service with Air Charter also remain a mystery, although she received her new CoA on November 29th 1952, so she probably took to the air for ACL not long after this date. During 1953, Uniform Tango was involved in an accident in Berlin and in an attempt to get her airworthy, the outer wing panels of derelict ex-Surrey Flying Services York G-ANAA were dispatched to Germany during September. While her later service history also remains unknown, it is highly probable that she was heavily involved in trooping work for much of the time. Finally in March 1955, she was flown into Stansted and stored for a short period before being sold to Maritime Central Airways in Canada.
