Jet Provost
8409M (XS209)

This was one of the 185 aircraft ordered from Hunting Percival by the RAF. It was fitted with the more powerful Armstrong Siddeley (later Rolls Royce) Viper Mk-22 engine.

She was delivered to RAF Manby on the 4th February 1964, where they had a College of Air Warfare “Macaw’s” aerobatic display team who provided air displays and shows throughout the 1960’s and early 1970’s. The aircraft wore a short lived all over grey colour scheme with a red flash on the side of the nose.
