    SE-BKH P.66 Pembroke

    Seen reported on the Swedish Aviation Historical Forum that this has been scrapped, grounded in 2014 and put up for sale., no takers so has been scrapped , why wasn't this donated to a museum or put up for preservation somewhere ?

    Was presumably owned by the Vasteras Aviation Museum at Vasteras. Ex XK-884 and G-BNPG. Another Percival Product Passes?

    Oddly enough I went looking for this Swedish Aviation Historical Forum, and found a post about a Pembroke being saved: http://forum.flyghistoria.org/viewto...b035d67e067c60

    I'm using Chrome, which translates the page automatically. At the bottom of the page there is a link to another Pembroke story, though less fortunate: http://forum.flyghistoria.org/viewto...p?f=118&t=9784

    Perhaps the apathetic response to this thread is indicative of an apathetic attitude towards Pembrokes in general?

    Just my thoughts, but by scrapping an aircraft you're getting some of your money back as the metals are sold at scrap value. In donating the aircraft you'd first have to find a museum willing to take it on, and then you're probably paying extra just to get it there. So, the answer to your question might be related to the financial side of the deal.
