Gnat F.1 E1059 at Ajmer, ; Rishu Mandolia/Mayo College

Mayo College has on its premises this aircraft, serialled E1059. The aircraft is on display in a barbed wire enclosure with a board giving the type's background and performance particulars; it is stated to be an Ajeet but as it only has two underwing hardpoints is far more likely to be a Gnat. Also, the serial number of the aircraft is not in sequence with known serials of Ajeets. E1059 sounds too much of a coincidence as there is a Gnat with the serial IE1059 at the IAF Museum in Delhi.
