This Comet, "Sagittarius", the only Mk. 2 surviving and has been the gate guard at RAF Lyneham since 1987. It entered service with 216 Sqn, RAF in February 1957 until its retirement in 1967. With the impending closure of RAF Lynham, its future must be in doubt, especially as enquiries reveal the airframe has deteriorated considerably over recent years and would require major restoration to save it from being scrapped.

Does anybody knows if this beauty survive the scrap? Hope yes, as destroying it would be a terrible mistake
