|Unit: 3 Sqn 'Royal Flight', RIrAF
In May 1948 the RIrAF also received the first three De Havilland Dove VIP-transports. These entered service with the No.3 Squadron, which was in 1951 to form the so-called 'Royal Flight'. This unit, the aircraft of which were easily recognizable by the letters 'RF' applied on their fins, was later also to operate at least three De Havilland Herons. The rest of the No.3 Sqn flew remaining Ansons for most of the 1950s.
