    That one's been a long time gone from the UK - more than 61 years, to be precise!

    When I had my Tiger Moth flight there was an Auster/Autocrat free to a good home clocking up parking fees. I wonder if it found a home? It was a small airfield on the Derbyshire Yorkshire border not far from the Derwent Dam about 5 years ago.

    It was Autocrat G-AJIU at Netherthorpe . It moved on probably two years ago.

    It looks as though OY-DSZ has made it across the North Sea.
    Feel fairly sure it was at Stauning when I was there last August.

    It arrived at Doncaster Monday after a slight detour to its first delivery base RAF Firbeck

    Could have been OY-DSH, same type in the same scheme, although with the serial LB381 as opposed to LB314 for OY-DSZ. OY-DSH belongs to the Danish Vintage Aircraft Museum (although the entry on their website confusingly shows a picture of OY-DSZ) and is still airworthy, I think.

    Both Taylorcraft OY-DSH & OY-DSZ were present at the time of my visit to Stauning in August.
    -DSH was in the Museum. -DSZ was in one of the "lock-ups" on the airfield.
    I cannot recall if it was in a dismantled state.

    Why a non - flyer? No prospect of a return to airworthiness?

    I like being grey - it means I can worry without it showing!

    The aircraft was purchased because of its condition and being one of four surviving Mk.1's with an RAF Firbeck history. When purchased it had not been flown for a number of years.
    It was advertised last year at a very competitive price but despite that found no British buyer prepared to stump up the money.
    It was purchased from its last Danish owner who had no plans for it.

    In terms of flying - realistically you would
    want to recover it and do an engine overhaul.That would give you no change out of 30K at commercial rates - an Auster Mk.1 in good order usually sells for 10-14K.
