'The Avro Athena was a British Advanced Training aircraft designed to replace the Harvard aircraft. It was originally designed for a gas turbine engine, and the first three prototypes used this. However the RAF had large stocks of Merlin engines and the type was re-designed to utilise this engine. 15 examples were built and used for a short time by the RAF. However the RAF preferred the Boulton Paul Balliol so no further Athenas were built and its RAF career was short' (from an advertisement for a digitized pdf).
