This beautifully restored Mk I Avro Anson is the only airworthy example currently flying. Photographed in April 2014 at Wanaka New Zealand. So beautifully restored, it looks like a new one. The aircraft is painted to represent K 6183 from 206 Squadron Coastal Command which was based at RAF Bircham Newton, Norfolk. K 6183 was the first combat loss by the RAF in WWII (5th September 1939) and the sole survivor P/O Edwards became the first RAF officer to become a POW in WWII. Best viewed enlarged.
