An ex-Royal Navy machine that spent most of its operational life with A&AEE and RAE. It was withdrawn by 10 June 1960, and used for ground instruction as 7703M at RAF Weeton and later at St Athan. Moved to the Museum of Army Flying at Middle Wallop on 24 April 1978. Registered as N9987Q on 30 November 1981 to be displayed as "0020" at the Venezuelan Air Force Museum, but instead it went to Cornwall Aero Park/Flambards in Helston, Cornwall as "WG754/CU-912". When Flambards closed it went to Culdrose to be dismantled and shipped to the Royal Australian Navy museum at Nowra on 16 February 2000.

Photographer unknown. After retirement by the RAF in 1975, XL658 became EI-BBY with a company called Interconair, which specialised in exporting beef from Ireland to other European countries. Its career was cut short on 30 September 1977 when a propellor malfunction on short final to runway 24 at Shannon led to a deviation from the approach and a crash-landing in a farmer's field across the road. The aircraft was a write-off but all on board walked away.
