I had to look-up what is GTA, now I feel old! Reminds me of the time I was trying to fix an NFS file-server issue and kept getting search results back for 'Need For Speed'.  Kids and their incomprehensible pass-times!

NIPR G-AVKK; I only learned recently that this was the sole Nipper IIIA built with sliding canopy and tip-tanks, though others were modded with tanks later.  Built under conract by Slingsby in 1967, happy half-century!
