North American Harvard T.2B KF346: Delivered September 1944. However, only known RAF service was with 3 FTS, RAF Feltwell, Thetford, Norfolk from February 1951.

Written off (damaged beyond repair) 14/1/55: The aircraft struck overhead power and telephone tables after the engine lost power following recovery from a practice forced landing at RAF Feltwell, Thetford, Norfolk. Although the Harvard was able to perform a circuit and land safely back at RAF Feltwell, it was later deemed as "beyond economic repair" and struck off charge as Cat.5(c)
