Bill Reid took his Avro Anson Mk I up for its first flight on July 18 at Nelson Airport in New Zealand, after a ten-year restoration effort. The uneventful first flight lasted 45 minutes and was followed by another one-hour flight on the same day. This is th first time an Avro Anson Mk I has flown since 1972.

The Avro Anson Mk I MH 120 was painted as K6183 of No 206 Squadron (Coastal Command) during the Second World War.
