A selection of shots of the Midland Air Museum's XK740, taken while it was being restored - it looks in rather better nick these days!
Some shots of XR991 (the yellow one) and G-RORI (note that both have had some modifications made for civilian use) plus XR754 at Cosford.

HAVING SERVED MY APPRENTICESHIP WITH FOLLAND AIRCRAFT LTD, FROM 1955, I FOUND THIS SITE FASCINATING AND VERY NOSTALGIC. I FINISHED ON THE EJECTOR SEAT DESIGN TEAM AND EMIGRATED TO AMERICA IN 1963. 'DUMBO' WILLANS USED TO LIVE TEST THE SEATS FROM A CONVERTED METEOR. I DID NOT REALISE AT THE TIME, JUST HOW MANY AIRCRAFT DESIGNS, 'TEDDY' PETTER WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR. SEVEN!- WELKIN, WHIRLWIND, LYSANDER, CANBERRA, LIGHTNING, WYVERN AND GNAT. NOT BAD FOR A QUAKER EH?
