After the success of the Kestrel the RAF ordered six pre-production development P.1127 aircraft (XV276 - XV281), of which this is the fifth built. It first flew in April 1967. After testing it then went to RNAS Yeoviltion for ground instruction as A2700 and eventual scrappage with the pod on display at the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum/Aeroventure.
