Aircraft Summary

This aircraft c/n 64, a V.701C, was built for British European Airways Corporation (BEA) as G-ANHD and first flew on Sunday, 24 April 1955 at Hurn, Bournemouth, Hampshire, England. During it's life it was also owned and/or operated by Viação Aérea São Paulo SA (VASP)

Its final owner/operator was Museu Eduardo André Matarazzo. Its fate: Acquired from Viação Aérea São Paulo SA (VASP) and moved to the Museu Eduardo A Matarazzo in the centre of Bebedouro, State of São Paulo, Brasil circa January 1974. The actual date is not known. The museum remains open but the aircraft are in poor external condition with no signs of maintenance. There are calls for the government to provide funding as it would certainly be sad to see these aircraft crumble into dust, especially the only surviving Saab Scandia. Aircraft noted in better condition in February 2019. Still visible on Google Earth 12 October 2020.
