Designed by Edgar Percival at Luton as a 6 seat civil transport and first flying in 1938, the majority of the 27 produced were used by the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy as communications aircraft. Not surprisingly there appears to be only one extent which is in non flying condition in Norfolk England.
