G-DIII | Pitts S2B

Pitts S2B registration G-DIII is serial number 5163 and was manufactured by Christen Industries Inc in its factory in Afton, Wyoming, USA in October 1989.  It was first registered in USA as N260Y before being delivered to the UK in 1994 when it was re-registered as G-STUB (S-2-B).   Very shortly afterwards, in July 1994, G-STUB was involved in an accident after a fuel induced loss of power and forced landing into a field of 1.5m high rape crops. Al Coutts (Wildcat One) is the aircraft’s 5th owner since it arrived in the UK and re-registered it as G-DIII in March 2013 so that it has a corporate appearance with its sister aircraft G-ZIII.  G-DIII was recovered and repainted in team colours by Wildcat Engineering in 2013.
