Notes / History This was one of the numerous grounded enemy aircraft displayed throughout the country to rise funds for the RAF.

Members of the public paid a small fee to get a closer look at the plane and it's interior.

The emblem on the fuselage depicts a German eagle tearing at the head of a sorry looking British lion.
