Description Extended Information
 
Oxford OXAA002 RAF Avro Anson Mk. I Multi-Role Aircraft - No. 217 Squadron, RAF Coastal Command (1:72 Scale) "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
- British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, commenting on the British airmen in the Battle of Britain

The Avro Anson is a British twin-engine, multi-role aircraft that served with the Royal Air Force, Fleet Air Arm, Royal Canadian Air Force and numerous other air forces before, during, and after the Second World War. Named after British Admiral George Anson, it was originally designed as an airliner as the Avro 652 before being redeveloped for maritime reconnaissance, but was soon rendered obsolete in both roles. However, it was rescued from obscurity by its suitability as a multi-engine air crew trainer, becoming the mainstay of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. By the end of production in 1952, the Anson spanned nine variants; a total of 8,138 were built in Britain by Avro. From 1941, a further 2,882 were built by Federal Aircraft Ltd. in Canada.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a Avro Anson Mk. I Multi-Role Aircraft that was attached to No. 217 Squadron of RAF Coastal Command. Pre-order! Ship Date: 4th Quarter 2014.
