    A recent picture of Alouettes 196 and 197 still in storage with Airbus in France. Airbus has now donated 196 to a group in the US that want to preserve an Alouette III in an air ambulance configuration for display, they are looking to raise $19,000 to ship it to the US and refurbished.

      Wonder why Airbus kept them for so long after we retired them? Kind of assumed they'd been broken up for scrap tbh.

        Did we sell them to airbus for scrap/parts?
        Everyone who's ever loved you was wrong.

              it looks a bit odd without the floats, but still an excellent job!

                    Spins like a top, very steep but comes out immediately.

                      • The correct designation is Avro XIX and is listed as such in the log book, many pilots listed it as Anson in their personal log books . but in the period following delivery it was referred to as Avro XIX
