History[edit | edit source]

Built by Mraz in Czechoslovakia,[2] and assigned to an unknown unit,[1] 475099 is believed to have been surrendered in Flensburg at the end of the war.[2] Recorded as being in service with the RAE at Farnborough in September 1945,[1] 475099 is now at the South African Aviation Museum,[2] after being shipped from Birkenhead, England to Capetown, South Africa on the SS Perthshire on 20 Oct 1946, arriving on 6 November at Dunnottar and flown until 1950. It then went into storage until 1977, when restoration began, flying once more on 30 December 1979. The aircraft is presently on static display.[3][4][5]
