This one was at Greenham Common in 1973. Found on net but photographer is Ian Cole. It was the only other one I'd seen. Note that it is an 'A' model

From digging a little deeper there does seem to have been a run of annual airshow appearances in the UK during the early 70s with North Weald , Middle Wallop and Greenham Common at least getting one in quick succession but then I believe it became much rarer.

 

'Goliath' however was still in the UK as of 1600 on Tuesday evening sitting on the dockside at Montrose wrapped up and ready to go whenever the transport arrives , presuming that nothing is berthed or stored in the way it is visible across the river from the Life Boat Station area on the north bank.
