Phantom FGR.2 XT914 at RAF Brampton, 8th March 2012; Steven Harrison-Green

XT914 served with 14, 56, 74 and 92 Squadrons plus 228 OCU, and is preserved in 74's colours. After retirement she was put on display as the gate guard at RAF Brampton, she was carefully prepared for these duties and by 2012 she was still in generally excellent condition bar a bit of faded paintwork, with much of her cockpit contents intact. With RAF Brampton scheduled to be closed in 2014, it was reported that XT914 might move to RAF Wittering but with the early cessation of Harrier operations that obviously fell through. Happily efforts at Wattisham to bring a Phantom 'home' have come to fruition and XT914 was formally transferred to the Army on 12th January 2012 prior to being transported to the Wattisham Heritage Museum at Wattisham Camp (former RAF Wattisham, Phantom station) for further display duties. She departed Brampton - as you can see - on 8th March 2012 and hopfully it won't be too long before she's spruced up and put on display at Wattisham.
