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 including her exact arrival date with Aviation Traders. Her date of entry into service with Air Charter also remain a mystery, although she did receive her new C.o.A. on November 29th 1952 and likely took to the air for ACL not long after this. During 1953, Uniform Tango was involved in an accident in Berlin and rapid action was taken to get her airworthy again, the outer wing panels of derelict ex-Surrey Flying Services York G-ANAA being dispatched from Stansted to Germany during September. While her later service history also remains enigmatic, it is highly likely that like much of the Air Charter York fleet, she was kept busy carrying out trooping flights during this time. Finally, in March 1955 she was flown to Stansted where she would remain for a short period before being sold on to Maritime Central Airways in Canada.
