Interesting contradiction:

https://www.jetphotos.com/registration/G-THUN cites Nellie B as Serial #: 399-55731 and yet the rudder clearly shows 54-49192

Great photo! Thanks.

Lots of restoration and repeatedly sold/resold, eg: October the same year and arrived at The Fighter Collection, Duxford on the 22nd of January 1986.
Sold to Claire Aviation Inc and shipped to the USA in 01.03.2007.
Returned to the UK in 2018 and operated by Fighter Aviation Engineering LTD.

SO, the UK current owner has registered it for UK operations as G-THUN :-)
