Comment Five photos of aircraft parts and a letter sent by Martin Slater, the plane is still not assembled and ready to be shipped to Greece. ( October 2016)

Good evening,
I have been directed to you by a friend who receives your emails. I am from Aireborough, Yeadon actually, and now living in Warwickshire. I am in the aviation business involved particularly with older aircraft and museum flying and static exhibits. I know of an Avro Anson aircraft built at Yeadon which could be available which I think ought to be saved for posterity, and as my mother worked at the Avro during the war, possibly having a hand in the building of this particular one, it would be great to see it preserved at Yeadon. Do you know of anyone or any organisation that would be interested? Could it be on display at Leeds/Bradford Airport or at the old Avro factory?
I thought I would start with you to see if you have any ideas.
Best regards,
Martin Slater.
