    Talking The Percival Prince! aka (Sea Prince T1) January 2016


    So when venturing to the Shackleton, we decided to have a nose at this one just behind the burger van, was interesting for a few snaps an finding some details among the scribble some kids may have done.
    Like the Shackleton it was relaxing and really easy an thought I would share anyway.

    Some info on the Sea Prince:

    The Sea Prince T1 was a British light transport of the early postwar period. It has a twin engine, high wing, cantilever monoplane, of all metal stressed skin construction, the undercarriage was of retractable tricycle type.
    The prince was produced in six versions for the civil market, several examples were operated as executive aircraft including by standard motors and shell oil. Three aircraft were used by the UK ministry of civil aviation as airport facilities checking aircraft.
    The sea prince operated in two roles: In T.MK.1 form it served as a navigation and anti submarine trainer, the C.mks.1 and 2 were flown in the transport role. However these were landplanes and COD.

    (I am unsure if its really warranted in this section if not can you move it if need be)



























    Not the most interesting but it was cool for a few mins! :)
