History[]

Built as c/n 017,[2] A-517 was damaged in a Sea Harrier attack,[1] possibly at Port Stanley by 800 Squadron on 1 May 1982,[3] and was then used as a decoy for the rest of the war, being attacked several times more. Afterwards it was registered as G-BLRP and supposedly shipped to the UK in a container.[1] Owned by Grampian Helicopters International Ltd between 3 December 1984 and 15 September 1989, the aircraft passed to private owner Rodney John Halsey Butterfield[4], who retained ownership until the registration was cancelled on 16 November 1995.[2] The aircraft was reportedly sighted at RAF Bicester in 1995.[3]

It's subsequent fate is unknown.
