The following history for G-ALFU comes from the Duxford Aviation Society website:-

“‘FU was built as a Dove 4, later being modified to Dove 6 specification with more powerful engines. It spent the whole of its flying career from 1948 to 1972 based at Stansted Airport, and was used by the Civil Aviation Flying Unit for checking airport navigational aids and radio communications, and also for aircrew training. During its long career it flew a total of 10,597 hours. It was donated to the Imperial War Museum and was moved to Duxford in 1973. In February 1984 it was transferred to the DAS.”
