    Default Aircraft Movement Cards (AM Fom 78) for Hawker Hurricane II PG478

    Hi All. Just wondering if any of the venerable folk on here might be able to send me a copy of the movement card for this aircraft, or at least a transcript of its content. Thanks in advance. Andrew

    I guess this is in context of this?

    As posted by John E elsewhere
    Interesting photo on the IBCC site:

    Any ideas about unit or pilot? PG478 flew with 16 OTU and 1690 Flight.

    HI Jagan. Indeed, it is - you've clearly been paying attention to my posts! It was John E who kindly brought this to my attention. I have contacted the IBCC with regards to the photo but wanted to check the aircraft's allocation - as it isn't one which I have identified as having served with No.1690 B(D)TF. I would ask the RAFM at Hendon but they have been unresponsive for almost a year now. Cheers, Andrew

    Air Britain has PG478 as with 16 OTU and later 1690 Flight. I believe that these are taken from the Aircraft Movement cards.

    Thanks Graham. That is very helpful. Could you please tell me the full name of the publication, so I can try to get a copy? Thanks again. Andrew
