Hawker Siddley Dominie T.1 to HRH Carrier
« on: September 23, 2022, 09:31:24 AM »
Hi all

Second entry to run in parallel with the Hawk.



 I was going to do a back story about the Queens flight acquiring a couple of these but in the words of the late great and still missed Brian Da Basher I got 'skunked by reality' they did use VIP 125's all be it CC2's.

So a very tenuous backstop

One aircraft was taken off the flight line and converted to a VIP configuration for use as a more clandestine transport for the Royals. It was given a relatively plain white paint scheme to blend in with most bizjets of the time. It kept its registration and call sign so to the outside world it was still a training aircraft. It was used for a few years then quietly returned to its training role when the need for an incognito operation was no longer required.

More when it happens......

Also  :smiley:  . . .
I was going to do a CC.2, the grey scheme with blue trim, but for that I'd need a Matchbox version, and they're not cheap . . .


cheers,

Look for a Sword U125 kit -- they have one as a C-29A too. These are Hawker 125-800's

I looked at one of those, the windshield and engines are wrong for a CC.2, 'Spose I could have Whiffed it as a 'CC.4', but I decided to go in a somewhat different direction. More when the kit arrives . . .  ;)
