XV408, the Museum’s Phantom, received its long awaited respray during September. It is to be displayed in the colours of 29 Squadron with whom the Museum is collaborating to complete the task. As well as providing the decals needed it is hoped that their resources might produce some cockpit instrumentation and other parts currently missing on the Museum’s example. By happy coincidence 29 Squadron’s current Chief Technician worked on XV408 during its years in RAF service and the Museum is very grateful for his assistance with this important restoration task.
All our Flight Simulators are closed until further notice
