The prototype Victor first flew on 24.12.52 and is seen displaying at its first Farnborough SBAC show in September 1953, wearing its manufacturers two-tone colour scheme with no underwing roundels. WB771 lost its tailplane due to tail flutter on 14.07.54 and was destroyed in the ensuing fatal crash.
