The Gannet first flew in 1949 and made the first deck landing of a turboprop aircraft on HMS Illustrious. The first FFA Gannet squadron was 826 NAS on board HMS Eagle in the early warning and anti-submarine role, but by the mid 60s the Gannet switched to electronic counter measures and mail and light cargo supply. The Gannet was exported to many countries including the Royal Australian Navy, Indonesia and West Germany.
