Princley Pembroke Rare Sight!
Published: 10 Sep 2017
Scampton is delighted to welcome Percival Pembroke C1 WV740 G-BNPH in the flying programme, the only one of its type flying in the UK and a rare sight at airshows today. Operated by Horizon Air Services at MoD St Athan in South Wales, WV740 is the last airworthy example of 128 built for the RAF as a light transport aircraft. It was a development of the civilian Percival Prince, but had a longer wingspan to increase its carrying capabilities. The prototype first flew in November 1952 and the type served with the RAF until 1988 when it was replaced by the Hawker Siddeley Andover.
