Dornier Do28 A-1. G-ASUR...

Anyone out there who flew this aircraft or has knowledge of it?
Am I correct in thinking that it used to belong to Mr Harry Camm?
Aircraft now N-123CA in the ‘States?

Aircraft registry shows held in trust so not easy to find the actual owners..

Thanks ETOPS.
I gathered that’s now across the Atlantic , from Google.
I believe that is the only ‘A1 ever registered in Britain but I’m keen to find out more about the aircraft when it was in the UK.
Unfortunately it seems that no-one here knows much but , without boring everyone with the whole story , I flew A Do28 A1 for an hour , in 1975 , when I was 14!
I think it must have been this one but...
Thanks again.

Although registered in the USA, the aircraft remains based in the UK
Flight radar sites show that it's most recent flight was on June 25th 2022 when it flew from Old Warden to Turweston and back. It appears to be based at Old Warden but is not on public display

Aha!
Thanks Horatio.
It being registered over yonder, I assumed that it WAS there.
I think it was red & white when Mr Camm let me fly it.
A great day for an aviation minded young man, though the gulls at Dundee both above & below us for landing , made Harry grin!

Yes it was red but repainted in blue around 10 years ago

G-ASUR was owned by Sheffair in 1975 (the company had it between 1965 and 1996!)

Also G-ATAL owned by Richard Hayes Investments Ltd in 1975...
