Phantom Phinished?

XV408, the Museum’s Phantom FGR2, was repainted last year preparatory to its representation as a Phantom from 29 Squadron as flown in the 1980s. A team from the Squadron, led by the Chief Tech of the Eurofighter display team 2009, visited the Museum in April to fit Sidewinder missiles and appropriate decals thus moving its external presentation closer to completion. Pictures show the missiles, the decals and separately, the Gatling Gun pod yet to be fitted. Still to come are two Skyflash missiles and two drop tanks which are expected early this Summer, but work continues to find instruments for the cockpit.
