This T1 was delivered during March 1953 as WM735 and served until September 1980. Unfortunately it has been stuck and rotting away at Long Marston since February 1990. Now in shark markings with "Vibes Stika" titles on the rear fuselage.

It's terribly sad as this old Growler just rots away at Long Marston. Note the tail boom of Meteor WL332 in the background.

This Sea Prince was delivered to the RAF in July 1952 as WM735. In September 1980 it became G-RACA and was stored/preserved at Staverton for many years. In May 1989 it was transported to Long Marston, to become part of the Stratford Aviation Collection. That collection had closed by 1994, but the Sea Prince still resided at Long Marston by 2017. The "Godskitchen" graffiti dates back to the Godskitchen Global Gathering, which was held at Long Marston Airfield on 31 July 2004. The photo is a one-second exposure at ISO200, taken at 9.20pm.

Seen on a mound at the entrance to Long Marston airfield, Warwickshire, this is a sad end to the aircraft. Now mainly used as a graffiti board, its former RAF serial WM735 was barely visible under thick coats of paint.
