    What was the engine mod. super sioux? The cowls look a bit different with blisters covering what look to be individual exhaust stacks.

    It could well have been re-engined with P&W Wasp Juniors, judging by the diameter and length. Slightly larger diameter than the Leonides but spares still plentiful, especially Stateside.

    Just two hours to go.

    Surely should make a bit more than £650 !

ID:	252650Sorry to drag up an old thread but does XP294 at Bario count as a survivor?

    Interesting to see the wreck lives on, but it is XP294 (not XJ.)

    The nose of G-AYFA was restored, spares being obtained from Coventry such as a replacement nose hatch and overhead panels as well as myriad other useful smaller parts.

    It attended the 2012 Cockpit Fest at Newark and the following year it attended an event at Prestwick. It stayed there for about a week then was collected by members of the Dumfries & Galloway Aviation Group, with whom it remains on loan.

    It was great, firstly having rescued it on a whim from the scrappies twenty years earlier and finally, after it having gone through several owners in between, to have it back and to be working on its final restoration.

    I'll try and post a few pics.

ID:	252722 possibly one of the aircraft that were at Rumpin until recently. Google Earth shows an aircraft on a roundabout near by but not clear what it is. Anyone know what it is?

    Bankstown NSW, in July 2005. This is 9M-ARU I believe hiding behind the scaffolding.

    The above mentioned wreck of a Twin Pioneer in Sion / Sitten, Switzerland does apparently still exist. You can see it on last years photos in Google Earth. Also obvious that the recent use of the aircraft to train the local fire fighters did not help to keep it "healthy"... it is still not clear to me, why the aircraft, which was once displayed (in the open) in the "Swiss Museum of Transport" has been removed from there and abandoned.

    In response to my enquiry about HB-HOX, the airport authority gave the following reply:-

    "For your information, the aircraft was not stored, we have only one burned empty crashed fuselage.

    This part of the twin Pioneer was used for the Fire Brigade exercise’s and burned many many times. It’s just the shadow of the HB-HOX."

    The fuselage was still at Sion when I flew in in May 2015.

    Talking of Twin Pins prompted me to delve into my skydiving log books. In May 1974 I made several jumps from a Twin Pin at Weston On The Green. Of note we had an engine failure at 9500 feet. Hopefully someone will know which aircraft this was and can supply a photo of it.
