It was a C1A and I saw it over Oxford in 1964. Apparently it was Struck of Charge 1966 and went to Thorney Island dump where it probably subsequently expired. My problem is that it throws out your sequence of construction numbers as they are sequential without it."

Tom McGhee wrote (Dec.2010):
You are missing the following:-
TG536, (c/n HP67/40), to 8405M, expired Catterick Fire School sometime after January 1982
TG537, (c/n HP67/41), s.o.c. 03/09/1968

Lewis Grant also wrote (Dec.2010):
In fact, there appears to be some missing data in the TG53x batch of aircraft. The list has no entry for c/n HP67/35, line number 33. I have no information to prove this, but it would seem more logical if the aircraft ran in sequence from
TG530 c/n HP67/34 l/n 32, through to ....
TG537 c/n HP67/41, l/n 39,
then continued with
TG551 c/n HP67/42, l/n 40 as per the list..?
