Known as the 'Twin Pin', the Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer was a follow-up to the same company's single-engined short take-off and landing (STOL) transport, the Pioneer. Including civilian versions, 89 Twin Pioneers were built, and as well as the RAF, the type saw service with the Royal Malaysian Air Force and the Nepalese Royal Flight. Cosford`s example XL703, the only survivor, was delivered to the RAF in 1956. Following retirement, it was delivered to the RAF Museum for preservation.
