??? - A veteran returns
The recently-restored Fairchild Argus G-BCBL, owned by the publishers of After the Battle magazine and photographed by WINSTON RAMSAY. It now flies in its wartime colours as HB751.
Built in 1944, this Fairchild UC-61K Argus III reached Britain in September that year and served briefly with the ATA. In post-war years and civil guise it remained in Europe and has now been restored to wartime finish by the publishers of "After the Battle" magazine.
These studies of HB751, Winston Ramsey of After the Battle magazine, clearly illustrate the high wing layout and the complicated strut junction at the top of the undercarriage leg.
