Most retired aircraft end up on the scrapheap. But the Government Flying Service has bequeathed one of its old workhorses to the community, to give the public an accessible keepsake of Hong Kong's aviation history.

The Jetstream 41 fixed-wing plane was part of the GFS fleet for 17 years before it was retired in 2016. It was used for search and rescue missions, medical evacuations, law enforcement and aerial surveying.

Recently, it was given a permanent resting place in Kai Tak Runway Park to play a new role - educating the public.
