Percival Pembroke

Three week after the contract of the Hawker Hunters, in July of 1954, 16 Pembroke C Mk 52 were ordered. They got the Swedish designation TP 83. The individuals got the Air Force numbers 83001-83016. The aircraft were delivered in 1954-1956. Except for liaison and transport of Air Force personnel, it was used as ”flying classroom” for the education of navigators, ELINT (ELectronic INTelligence) in co-operation with the FRA (Försvarets Radioanstalt = ”the Radio Establishment of the Defence”) and Search And Rescue (SAR). Other duties was to act as a test platform and as a flying ambulance. Two aircraft (83006 and 83017) were in 1970 painted in a special blue-and-white colour scheme (see photo below!) and entirely used for VIP-transports. (Text from; more to read there.)
