The yellow and black paint scheme on this Westland Lysander indicates it was used as a target tug towing airborne targets for air to air and ground to air gunnery practice.

Here's a Youtube Westand Lysander Video of this very Lysander at the CWHM showing the stages of its restoration and engine run up and takeoff along with some flybys. This is another Lysander Youtube Video of this same aircraft on the field at an airshow.
