Granger Archaeopteryx




Designed in 1926 by R.F.T. and R.J.T.Granger and C.H.Latimer-Needham, the Archaeopteryx was built over the next four year at Attenborough, Notts. With a parasol configuration it retains a normal fin and rudder.
First flown in October 1930, it was flown regularly on short trial hops, mainly from Tollerton, Notts, before being officially registered on 3 June 1932 as G-ABXL cn 3A. The sole example built survived until stored through the war years at Chilwell, and after the war was presented to the Shuttleworth Trust.
It was restored to flying condition in 1971 and flown from Old Warden since.
