Photo Comment

This aircraft was operated by the Empire Test Pilots School. It is seen here receiving attention at Field Aircraft Services. Whilst I visited regularly it was rare for me to be allowed to take photos in the hangar. The aircraft was damaged beyond repair at RAE West Freugh on 1st October 1984
