G-BNHG, thank you.

Today was my last flight in G-BNHG, the aircraft I flew my first ever solo flight in.

Unfortunately, it's likely had one too many hard landings at the hands of students like myself – the front oleo collapsed and, since it's spent almost 12,000 hours in the air, it's not economical to repair.

G-BNHG won't fly again (and it was never the favourite aircrafrt of most students) but for me, and for many other students, she will always be the plane who enabled me to take to the skies alone for the first time.
