Related Notes & Links
G-BDPJ Piper PA-25 Pawnee 235B is the primary Glider Tug for the Swift Aerobatics Display Team, although it also participates in the teams displays after releasing a towed Glider.

This Pawnee was originally built as a crop duster, but now with an upgraded engine and small 4 bladed prop, it has become a good glider tug.

G-BDPJ although used by the Swift Aerobatics Display Team is actually the property of the Royal Air Force Gliding and Soaring Association and forms part of their fleet based at RAF Halton.
