    Yes please! That's a lovely photo and I'm sure it will only improve with sound.

      That's a superb photo Tony, love the exhaust flame! An incredibly unlovely aeroplane but an interesting one, hopefully we might see it out and about this year

          Thanks for posting.
          Nice photos.
          I have to wonder. Does it fly as good as it looks?!?

          Kidding aside, it's amazing that it has survived and even more so that it is going to be airworthy again. Really interesting.

            A lot of hours were flown when it became part of the Kemps Aerial survey fleet, alongside many Ansons.

              Thanks, Tony! Lovely photos. The Desford was a spritely and regular performer at Strathallan between 1974 and '78. Be nice to see it back in the air again.

                A cracking shot! I'm maybe in the minority, but I actually like the design. I'm also impressed by the restoration work, given the photos I saw of it at Snibston Discovery Park a few years ago.

                      I had a reply from a fellow photographer

                      The Desford has all the CAA paperwork and is ready for flight along with the 2nd Argus, there (Richard Ellingworth owns the Argus that is a flier at this moment in time) He also owns the Nord whic h will also be returning to flight sometime in the future.
