Narrative:
DH.60G [Gipsy I] registered as G-ABWY [C of R 3766] 26.5.32 to Surrey Flying Services Ltd, Croydon. C of A 3470 issued 27.5.32.

Written off (substantially damaged) and probably not repaired after it hit a pyrotechnics store on take-off from Croydon Airport, Croydon, Surrey 13.1.35. C of A lapsed 3.6.35 and not renewed. Some sources state "cancelled November 1940" but this probably relates to cancellation of the C of A - the registration was not cancelled until post-war

Donated as instructional airframe to an (unidentified) ATC Squadron, in Sutton, Surrey. Registration G-ABWY formally cancelled 1.12.46 after Air Ministry census or all surviving pre-war aircraft. Noted in 1947 at Worcester Park,Surrey, and rumoured to have been at Croydon in 1950 for rebuild, but unconfirmed.
