Thanks for the memory Larry! A lot of Proctors ended up in civilian hands after the war. I had a 90 minute joy ride from Fairoaks in 1958 in Proctor 4 G-AOBW – it was a beautiful day and the trip took us over Farnborough and Boscombe down – both very hush-hush places at the time. The one in your picture is a Proctor 4 too.
I would love a trip in one of these old girls and thank you
Excellent shot Larry. – Ted

Thank you Colin
A dandy little trainer, the Proctor. Great shot, Larry! We just got back from Massachusetts & Rhode Island where we spent Thanksgiving, & at dinner, I got into a long & fascinating conversation with my brother-in-law about the Storch. When he lived in England, he saw one of these creatures with its gangly fixed landing gear actually going straight up & down when the wind was just right.
Thank you Shelia I have only ever seen a Fieseler Storch once such a strange looking aircraft
