    An old thread, I appreciate but 162, whilst at Shallufa, did have a Hart (Audax?) on its books for general use. Was coded “106”. Has the actual serial number of that aircraft been discovered??

    According to the ORB for February 42 she was still flying on the 28th, so perhaps not "106" that is the crashed a/c in the picture.

    Thats right; 106 was still (ORB-wise) being reported in July ‘42

    Hello Andy,
    Just a thought about "106". Would it be able to trace its "original " squadron by checking which one in the middle east had numbers of "100" pluss ? Then it may be possible to get down to a serial number?

    As for the original aircraft crash photo, would it be possible to reproduce it in the thread again.

    "106" Sounds like a Training Machine FTS 4 ?

    Good call Col do we have a fate for Hawker Hart I K3028 was delivered to the Southern Rhodesia Air Force on 24 May, 1940. It was initially serialled as SR6, later "106" (carried on the rear fuselage and rudder).

    As a general, did any of those aircraft transferred to SR, actually get sent back to the RAF when they were finished with, or were they scrapped in situe?
