RAF Ringway

A second Lysander is allotted to the Central Landing School at RAF Ringway. (Source Ringway ORB.) Registration numbers for the pair are R2625 and R2626. The aircraft cards (AM Form 78) record that they were sent to 419 Flight; this shows that the cards were updated some timer later, for the formation of an SD Flight is not mooted until 16 August 1940, with the formal creation of No. 419 Flight four days later.
