Actually there were 2 models built, the series 100 and the slightly larger series 300 The Royal Air Force examples were off model 252C and 253C Young Cargo's fleet was purchased from the RAF and wore RAF colours with YOUNG Cargo titles 2 examples were sold to Liberia World in their beautiful red colourscheme The 9Q examples were the last flying in the world and passed very frequently through Ostend We only missed 1 in Ostend and this was 9Q-CAJ
