Beagle Pup, England, 2003.

The Beagle Aircraft Company used to make light aircraft such as the Airedale, Bassett, Husky and Pup in England. It had factories at Rearsby in Leicestershire and Shoreham in Sussex. The Bassett was a short-lived, twin piston-engined design evolved from the Bristol 220 project whilst the single-engined Bulldog/Pup family of lightplanes sold in greater numbers. Bulldog production was completed by Scottish Aviation at their Prestwick factory following the demise of the Beagle Aircraft Company. At the turn of the 21st Century, many Bulldogs were being sold by air forces to civilian operators, in much the same way that Austers were transferred from Army or RAF squadrons during the 1940s and 1950s.
