registered first to be owned by Keenair at Liverpool, then when registered 
(02/02/89), it was owned by Lord Beaverbrook from around 1989 - 1991.  Unfortunately the Gulf War 
meant that Kuwait Oil (who were sponsoring the restoration project) had its 
assets frozen and therefore money dried up. The aircraft, next to G-BPMP and 
a very large number of spares were "acquired" by Air Atlantique who then sold 
the aircraft to Parkhouse Aviation in High Wycombe. However, serious corrosion was discovered, 
so they ended up reducing it to spares.   When the aircraft was then broken up, 
the wings went to the US. This was carried out Apr 7, 1995. The nose section had a brief spell 
at the Mosquito Aircraft Museum at London Colney before moving on to the museum at Aalsmeerderbung in 
the Netherlands in November 1997.  The aircraft itself was officially declared 
wfu on Apr 18, 1995.  The nose of this DC-3 sits in the Luchtvaart Hobby Shop 
rebuilt as a training device.
