Scottish Aviation Bulldog T1 XX668 (G-CBAN)

The Scottish Aviation Bulldog is a British two-seat side-by-side training aircraft designed by Beagle Aircraft.

The prototype first flew on 19 May 1969 at Shoreham Airport. An initial interest was shown by the Swedish Air Airforce and led to an order for 78, but before any production aircraft were built, Beagle Aircraft ceased trading and the production rights for the aircraft, with the Swedish order, were taken over by Scottish Aviation (Bulldog) Limited. All subsequent aircraft were built at Prestwick Airport by Scottish Aviation, or in later years, British Aerospace.
