This aircraft was first flown 28.9.66 and was one of a batch of 39 built. To 11 Squadron 14.4.67 and to 56 Squadron RAF Akrotiri, and to 5 Squadron RAF Binbrook 1983. Now at this kids adventure park near Mansfield. Went there with my wife but, incredibly, was refused entry in this "paedophilia paranoia" world because we had no kids with us!!! So to get my pics I had to skulk and lurk around the perimeter!!! What a world! It is rumoured the owners want rid of it and that it is for sale on E bay! The wife very definitely says a resounding NO!!!
