Airspeed Oxford.
When in 1936 the Air Ministry issued a requirement for a twin engined trainer, Airspeed responded with its A.S. 10 design based on the A.S.6 Envoy light transport. The first prototype flew in June 1937, & deliveries of the Oxford Mark 1 began in November. Total production reached 8586 aircraft up to July 1945, & the type remained in service until 1954. In addition to its training role the Oxford was employed on communications, as air ambulances, for radar calibration & other duties.
