Green Goddess ex Carlilse Airport.

PGW502 was seen at Preston Park back in 1984. It is yet another that I haven't seen for ages, so any info on it would be most welcome.

Chris, I heard this had been scrapped a few years ago in Preston but couldn't confirm it, the last record I have of it was at Carlilse in 1986.

Hi my name is Stephanie Lawton, I work as an unpaid volunteer Exhibition Officer at the Solway Aviation Museum, Carlisle, Cumbria (Registered Charity)
I would like to ask if you would grant me permission to use the image of the Green Goddess from Carlisle Airport No. 18389. Do you have anymore images of it?
