The only time I ever saw a Javelin fly (other than in school athletics), XH897 of "A" Fighter Test Squadron A&AEE is seen here departing after static display at the 1971 Coltishall BoB Day. Now of course a well-known exhibit at Duxford. Taken with a borrowed 400mm of dubious quality, but a unique slide in my collection.
