This replica was built by EMK Aircraft and first flew 12.4.83 at Old Warden as G-BIAU. On 13.9.89 its certificate of airworthiness expired. On 7th August 1917, the original N6452 attempted to land on HMS Furious and attempted to go round before touchdown but the engine chokes, the Pup stalls, and falls into the water off the starboard bow. The pilot, Squadron Leader Edwin H. Dunning, was stunned and drowned before he could be rescued. Dunning had made two previous successful landings on Furious the first-ever aboard a moving vessel.
