Gannet T.2 XA508 at Baginton, 2nd May 2016; author

On loan from the Fleet Air Arm Museum, XA508 is the only T.2 left in the world, and was in fact the first production T.2. XA508 is in pretty good overall condition. As a concession to ease of maintenance and as protection from the weather, she was painted light grey rather than in the unpainted natural metal finish she would have worn in service, but the years haven't been kind to the grey so she is now in the midst of a complete repaint.
