Photographer's Remark

Nowadays in the FAA Museum store with standard nose and RN grey/white paintwork, this Sea Vixen spent much of its flying career on various trials, including night and deck landing, carrying this striking black/white scheme for Martel missile tests from 1968. Only recently withdrawn when seen here, it was often moved, going to Portland, Ilkeston, Southampton and Fleetlands before settling back at Yeovilton
