Built as an FAW.7 and seeing service with 5, 25 and 33 sqns, she was converted to an FAW.9 and used by the A&AEE (at Boscombe Down) for various purposes, mostly chase and calibration duties whereby it would fly alongside newer types so their airspeed indicators could be accurately calibrated against a known target. It served this role on the Shorts SC.9, Concorde and MRCA (Tornado) projects. This was the last Javelin ever to fly, landing here at Duxford on 24-Jan-1975.
