Photographer's Remark

Preserved by Hawker Siddeley in potentially airworthy condition, and passed to the Royal Navy Historic Flight in 1970. It was destroyed following hydraulic failure after take-off from RNAS Prestwick on 10-6-89, leaving one undercarriage leg in the landing position. The pilot ((Lt. Cdr. John Beattie) reluctantly parachuted to safety, leaving the aircraft to crash into the Irish Sea.
