From ex CPOAEA W.L.Dixon:
I know every nut and bolt of this airframe having been on HMS Hydra Flight for many years and also being the flying maintainer I have over 100 flying hours trying to sort out mainly the track and vibro so to this effect I have had a look in my flying log (my most treasured possesion )to find the following after disbanding of the flight we were both given to 829 Squadron and between october 28 and november 30 1987 I flew in it almost daily with a track and vibration problem the last pilot with me was LT CDR Adams so to this effect it must have been sent to RNZN IN 1989.
