XV401 - Everett Aero?, MoD Boscombe Down, Wiltshire
Phantom FGR.2 XV401 at Boscombe Down, 1st May 2000; author
XV401 served with 23, 29, 41, 56, 74 and 111 Squadrons plus 228 OCU, ending active service with 74 at RAF Wattisham. Transported to Boscombe Down and put under DERA's care, she was transferred to the new museum there in 2000. She was a bit tired looking but pretty much intact when I visited. Unfortunately she's not been easy to see, with the Collection not open to the public until they moved away from Boscombe - and they didn't get a chance to take either of the Boscombe F-4s with them. XV401 was disposed of, it is thought to Everett Aero, in November 2012, but has yet to leave.
