This is an interesting aircraft that I know nothing about. What is history of this bird? Inquiring mind want to know!

Umm... It did everything.

Started as a Coastal Command aircraft, got used for transport, training, patrol, communications, banner tug, search and rescue... 161 (Special Duties) Squadron even managed to do a spy drop off and pick-up in occupied France using an Annie I!

Basically, if you were in the RAF in World War II, you'd have seen the Anson everywhere. The USAAF used them, the Canadians built factoryloads of them. Heck. Even the Irish had a few. ;)

Which, in part, was the Anson's downfall. There were simply so many Anson Is that nobody thought to actually save any from the scrap merchants. There are airframes in museums that you can count on one hand. One strange person in New Zealand has recently returned a single example to the air. The Avro XIX (Anson X) is still around in far greater numbers, but that served until well after the war in airline and military service, so they actually reached museums and collections.

Cheers.

Ian P.

Ian,
Thanks for the info! That is a very interesting history and would seem that it was quite effective in the war effort.
Never too old to learn something new!

Just in case anyone cares, the agent pickup was on the night of 1st/2nd March 1942. Aircraft R3316, Operation BERYL II and III, Sqn Ldr Alan Murphy and Plt Off Henry Cossar picked up four agents from 1.5km NE of Segry... Right, slap bang, in the middle of occupied France.

:shock:

Nice to stop by and find a whole new aircraft waiting... and one that, as a Yank, I don't know at all well. But I mean to. Many thanks to A2A and the development team!

I am just happy that A2A is FINALLY somehow affiliated with a twin now, even if it doesn't get accu-simmed. ;)

The wheels are in motion! :D
