    Ok, new aircraft:

    1. USN aircraft.
    2. Under certain conditions, the landing gear could be replaced with a fuel tank to extend the range of the aircraft.

    The Avro Anson? Thanks; Ernie P.


     Avro Anson
     Role: Multirole aircraft, primarily a trainer
     Manufacturer: Avro
     First flight: 24 March 1935
     Introduced: 1936
     Retired: 28 June 1968 (RAF)
     Primary users: Royal Air Force Fleet Air Arm
     Produced: 1930s-1952
     Number built: 11,020

    The Avro Anson was a British twin-engine, multi-role aircraft that served with the Royal Air Force, Fleet Air Arm and numerous other air forces during the Second World War and afterwards. Named for British admiral George Anson, it was originally designed for maritime reconnaissance, but was soon rendered obsolete. However it was rescued from obscurity by its suitability as a multi-engine air crew trainer, becoming the mainstay of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. By the end of its production life in 1952, the Anson spanned nine variants and a total of 8,138 had been built in Britain by Avro and, from 1941, a further 2,882 by the Canadian Federal Aircraft Limited.

    The Anson was evolved from the Avro 652 commercial monoplane which was designed and built to the order of Imperial Airways in 1933. The 652A, or Anson I, went into service in the RAF in 1936 as a General Reconnaissance monoplane. It was also adapted for certain specialized training duties. Before the end of its operational career with Coastal Command the Anson had been earmarked to be the standard twin-engined trainer for the Commonwealth Air Training Plan then being organized in Canada. Production of the trainer was originally to be undertaken in England but owing to the grave war situation and the shortage of shipping space in 1940 the decision was taken to build the Anson in Canada and to equip it with engines of American design which were then readily available.

    A Government-owned company, Federal Aircraft, Ltd., was set up to handle Anson production in Canada, the Dominion being responsible for the production of the Anson II, III, V and VI. The Mark numbers VII, VIII and IX were allotted for use in Canada but they were never used. Production continued in England to meet domestic needs, the British versions being the Mk. I, X, XI, and XII.

    A distinctive feature of the Anson I was its landing gear retraction mechanism which required no less than 140 turns of the hand crank by the pilot. To forgo this laborious process, early model Ansons often made short flights with the landing gear extended at the expense of 30 mph (50 km/h) of cruise speed.

    A total of 11,020 Ansons were built by the end of production in 1952, making it the second-most-numerous (after the Vickers Wellington) British multi-engine aircraft of the war.
