Phantom XV408 Gifted To The Museum

In November 2005 McDonnell Douglas Phantom FGR2 XV408 arrived at the Museum on loan from the RAF Museum. This loan delighted the Museum’s present Chairman, Group Captain David Baron, who had flown the aircraft on a number of sorties whilst serving at the Phantom Operational Conversion Unit and with No 6, the first RAF Phantom Squadron.

David’s most memorable flight in this aircraft was taking part in the Phantom element of the flypast over Caernarfon Castle for the Investiture of the Prince of Wales on 1 July 1969.

The RAF Museum has recently decided to reduce the number of Phantoms in its collection and last month offered to the Museum, as a gift, XV408. The Trustees have gratefully accepted this gift. The plan now is to repaint the aircraft in the deep blue paint scheme XV408 wore whilst serving with No 92 Squadron in 1991. It was painted in this way to commemorate the last year of Phantom operations in Germany.
