The long-term restoration of XS897 is progressing very well indeed here at AeroVenture (South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum). Delivered new in Dec-1966 to 74 Sqn at RAF Tengah in Singapore then to 56 Sqn at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus. She spent the rest of her service life at RAF Binbrook in use with 5 and 11 Sqns. Eventually she wound up at Rossington near Doncaster and was rescued by a museum member at the eleventh hour as its wings were being smashed off.
