Built at nearby Brockworth as an FAW.7 in 1959, XH903 was converted to an FAW.8 and then an FAW.9, saw service with five squadrons and was retired all within a period of six years. It became the gate guardian at nearby RAF Innsworth in 1967, where it remained until acquisition by the Jet Age Museum at Staverton in the early nineties. It has been here on the gate at Staverton since 2003.
