uilt by Skysport Engineering, UK in 1986. It crashed on its first test flight in July that year, despite being flown by a very experienced test pilot. The engine suffered a rich mixture cut out and the aircraft spun in off its final turn in an attempt to land back on the airfield. It was obtained by an Australian collector, Robert Greinert of Classic Aviation Services, Bankstown, but was not repaired. Several replacement components were made, however, including the undercarriage and engine cowl.
Agreement was reached to swap this aircraft for a Republic P-47 Thunderbolt that was surplus to the Museum's requirements. The exchange was completed in early 1995 and the Pup has been restored to static display condition. It is finished as an aircraft of No. 3 Squadron, Royal Naval Air Service as flown by New Zealander, Captain Harold F. Beamish DSC, and can be viewed in the Horizon to Horizon Gallery.
