DAP Beaufort (Mk.VII) A9-141

Post by West-Front » Thu May 22, 2008 1:51 am

This aircraft was handed over to the Royal Australian Air Force on 29 October 1942, who assigned it the serial number A9-141. It finished its service life on 26 April 1944, seeing active service defending Australia during this time.

With the dedication of a small group of volunteers and the financial support of our sponsors, A9-141 is currently being restored to flight. When completed (in 2011 - for the 90th Anniversary of the Royal Australian Air Force), it will be the only airworthy Beaufort anywhere in the world - of the (approximately) 1,800 built for the Royal Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force.

We invite you to view the progress of the restoration, to find out some more about the Beaufort - it's production and service with the Royal Australian Air Force - and to donate to the restoration effort.
