Notes:

Being used as a ground target in the "Rabbit Range" and has been on the receiving end of explosive hardware from Harriers and Phantoms for a couple of years. Originally it was captured in Port Stanley after the war and is being robbed of components to get sister ship AE-413/G-HUEY flying again. The parts either being overhauled or swapped with the US Army in Germany. The aircraft is surrounded by holes made by bombs that have failed to detonate due to the soft peat. We are talking in whispers and tip toeing about just in case. Nearby is Pucara A-506 and Turbo Mentor 0730 in the same sort of conditions. All this scrap was cleared away in the early 90s.
