Just out of interest, Jhieminga, if you know, what was the last one to go "extinct"? I agree with you about saving the Bev. Unique.

Sorry, I don't know the answer to that question I'm afraid... I would like to know too! Perhaps the statement is incorrect, I'm sure someone will correct and/or enlighten us...

Thanks stevef; that would probably be the last. Any other contenders welcome.

I was on 71MU in 1967 when the last of the Beverlys were flown in and were placed in short term storage, lead free petrol and weekly ground runs on Fridays ,just opposite AMQs !!! Rumours were that Djuiboti Airways wanted them for the pilgrim trade or Shell to transport oil rig bits ,so I think I was running them for about 3 months. I have some interesting pictures of their arrival ,partcularly of the paint schemes.

Almost tenuous, but the Avro Ashton centre/forward fuselage on display at Newark Air Museum (the only survivor of the six Ashtons built), was actually converted from a Tudor 8.

Not the last but close, DH 86 Express G-ACZP expired 21st September 1958 but on a positive note we do have two DH 90 Dragonflies, they were thought extinct for a while.

Four deH86 Expresses were exported to Turkey in 1937 (serial nos: 2355, 2356, 2357, 2358) All are now recorded as "Fate Unknown". It has been suggested that 2355 (TC-ERK) may have been flying as late as 1963. It seems strange to me that these medium sized civilian aircraft appear to have disappeared without much recorded trace.
