Aaah, beautiful … I learned all about restraint … and weight ‘n balance on Daks.
Can't remember the paint job, but can recall seeing them from Ark Royal operating in the Adriatic in the late 90s.I think the two tone colour scheme sported by the Super Eterndard Modernise is is later years was rather fetching:
Why did the Marine Nationale opt for this scheme? They used it in the 90s in the Adriatic, but originally they used all grey:
Is that a good or a bad thing?[drift]

600kg Legislation Goes Before Parliament
The BMAA and LAA are pleased to report the long awaited revision of the UK microlight definition comes a step closer today, as the proposed revisions to the Air Navigation Order which will enact the changes are put before Parliament. The result of extensive collaborative working between the Associations, CAA and industry representatives, it is hoped that this will lead to the new 600kg Microlight classification being incorporated into law on 19 August 2021.

There was an old lad ( whose name I now forget, though he must be long dead now) who was renovating one of those to flying status in a hangar at Ronaldsway in the mid1990’s.Percival Q6 Petrel
The original service station, had a decorative frieze said to depict Berlins 1945 skyline. Damned if I find a photo. Any help ¿

it was complete and in very good nick then.
They covered her on a programme called Aircraft Restoration. Series 2.The chap from Isle of Man died some years ago; the aircraft then sat waiting a buyer and was eventually purchased and taken to Seething. The new owner discovered that the outer wing panels which had been made for the renovation had been made without reference to drawings (!!!!) and were thus not going to be any good for restoration to flight. He posted about this on the Key aero website about 10 years ago, and a slow restoration has been under way ever since; the plan is it'll become part of the Finest Hour warbirds fleet in 2023.
I assume that means it'll be operating out of Bicester alongside their Tiger Moths, although they do have some link with Cotswold airport.
