An introduction to the aircraft of the Historic Aircraft Flight.

On 1st February 2015 five of the aircraft from the Army Historic Aircraft Flight (AHAF) were gifted and formally handed over to the Historic Aircraft Flight Trust. They will remain at their current location at the Army Aviation Centre, Middle Wallop, Hampshire.

Formed in 1980, the AHAF were permitted to maintain one example of of each aircraft that the Army Air Corps operated since the formation of the new Corps on 1 September 1957. The six different AHAF aircraft types had a combined regular service of 146 years and it was unique by being the only display team in the world to fly both fixed and rotary wing aircraft.

Five of the aircraft, less the Chipmunk T10, are now registered with the civil register:

Auster AOP Mk9 - XR244 (G-CICR)

De Havilland Beaver AL Mk1 - XP820 (G-CICP)

De Havilland Chipmunk T10 WD325

Sud Aviation Alouette II - XR379 (G-CICS)

Agusta-Bell Sioux AH Mk1 - XT131 (G-CICN)

Westland Scout AH Mk1 - XT626 (G-CIBW)

The Historic Aircraft Flight also includes two non-flying aircraft:

Saunders Roe Skeeter AOP Mk12 - XL812 (G-SARO)

De Havilland Tiger Moth D1182A - EM840 (G-ANBY)
