I remember my father being flown in one of these from Stoughton (Leics.) aerodrome to RAF Valley during the construction of Wylfa nuclear power station, this saving an overnight stay on Anglesey (the A5 being the only alternative route in those days) The company (National Nuclear Corporation) also operated a DH Dove. Once I was at Stoughton awaiting the arrival of my wife when I noticed the Heron was being towed off the runway and a couple of people picking up debris from the runway - I hope it was only a burst tyre, but I remember my father saying the dashboard was covered in black tape!

I remember a conversion, probably by the infamous Riley. Flat six Lycomings I think. It was supposed to be a proto-commuter, but I think it fell flat.
