wl 790 was my aircraft on 204 sqdn raf ballykelly from august 1954 until i went to 240 sqdn to form a crew for grapple yankee
i saw her in 1994 when air atlantique were refurbishing her
ithey let me get into her and she smelt just the same
she was one of those aircraft that you can trust ,unlike some which shall blush unseen
