History[edit | edit source]

Captured by the USAAF at Rheims[1], 240161 was handed over to the RAF and allocated Air Min 225, being test-flown and subsequently flown to Merville, France. On its delivery flight to the RAE on 13 December 1945[2], due to hydraulic trouble which prevented the nose wheel to be lowered, the aircraft was damaged in the subsequent forced-landing and apparently never repaired.
