Beagle B.121 Pup

Four versions of the Pup were produced by Beagle: the Pup-100 fully aerobatic light aircraft with accommodation for two adults and powered by a 74.5kW Rolls-Royce/Continental O-200-A flat-four engine, deliveries beginning in April 1968; the Pup-150 with seating for two adults but with an optional seat for a third adult or two children and powered by a 112kW Lycoming O-320-A2B engine; the Pup-160 with a 119kW Lycoming O-320-D2C engine; and the Pup-200 with a 149kW Continental engine. A total of 128 Pups had been delivered by the close of 1969, when a further 267 aircraft were on order. However the company went into liquidation and the Pup was developed into the Bulldog by Scottish Aviation.

I had the pleasure of learning on a Pup at Shipdham airfield mid 80's I then went on to own one for about 6 years G-AXZN a truly delightful aircraft.

I owned a Beagle Pup 150 (serial number B121-126)for a number of years. I was a lovely aeroplane to fly and was sold reluctently for medical reasons. At the time I believe it was the only one left in Asutralia.

This photograph is of a Scottish Aviation Bulldog and looks to have the markings of Royal Malaysian Air Force (TUDM).
The most noticeable difference is the Bulldog has a sliding cockpit canopy wheras the Beagle Pup has two doors.

I learned to fly in G-AXOJ,at Biggin Hill, many happy memories, I always preferred an aeroplane with a 'stick.

That is NOT a photo of a Beagle Pup - that is a Bulldog. I owned the only Pup-100 in the USA back in the early 1980s.
