    Thanks Paul...going by the Hiller UH-12B I'd guess at around 55-59 but hopefully someone can confirm .
    I believe the earliest possible date would be June 55 -when the first of AST's Hillers was registered.

    These photos of the Gnat and Plaques have been sent to me by Peter Dobromylski who has kindly allowed me to put them on the forum.
