The EAA Super VC10s were not purchased outright, but were taken on in a lease-purchase deal. The delivery of the first EAA VC10 was actually delayed for an hour as not all the guarantees for the deal were in place. Indeed the remaining four VC10s were flown back to the UK when EAA folded, with Trubshaw flying along on one of the ferry flights. 5H-MMT was then used after its return to do some training flights so that Trubshaw's (and Eddie MacNamara's) VC10 type rating could be revalidated.
