G-AHMH  Percival P.48 Merganser               (c/n  AU.1)


                                       This image of the one and only Merganser was taken from a Percival Aircraft brochure, circa 1947.  
                                       First flown on 9 May 1947 with the Class B registration X-2, this 5-8 passenger feeder liner was
                                       powered by two 269 h.p. Gipsy Queen 51 engines.   In the event, production of these engines was
                                       terminated by de Havillands and the Merganser was scrapped in 1948.  It did, however, lead to the
                                       development of the larger model P.50 Prince.
