Avro Anson flies in new colours


Avro Anson T21 WD413 (G-VROE) has flown again at Sleap in Shropshire following an overhaul and a repaint. The 1950-built machine previously flew in an overall silver scheme with Air Atlantique’s Classic Flight. It’s pictured getting airborne from Sleap in its new livery on June 1.


The Canberra Operating Team at Bruntingthorpe, Leicestershire has applied special markings to the tail of its airframe – B(I)8/B.6 Mod WT333 – to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the type’s first flight. Better known as ‘Treble Three’, the English Electric jet debuted its new livery at the airfield’s recent Cold War Jets Day on May 26. KEY-JAMIE EWAN

One of the RAF’s oldest bomber units is set to reform at RAF Marham, Norfolk on July 1. The roots of 207 Squadron date to December 1916 when it was founded as a heavy bombing unit (then called 7 Squadron Royal Naval Air Service). It will now be an Operational Conversion Unit for the F-35B Lightning II. ANDREW THOMAS
