Avro Anson C.1

 Twin engined training and communications aircraft and light transport.

On January 16th 1947 the Belgian government ordered 11 Avro Anson I and two Avro Anson XII light transport aircraft through "Command paper 7039" (together with some other aircraft types). In contrary of the contemporarily Airspeed Oxford the Anson was only used by the 169th/15th Transport Wing based at Evere and later  Melsbroek and the 7th Wing at Chièvres. In 1954 the obsolete Ansons were replaced by the Percival Pembroke and the remaining aircraft were scrapped.
