Sea Vixen FAW.1 XJ482 at Flixton, 10th May 2008; Richard E Flagg

A little easier to visit is XJ482, the only other complete FAW.1 in existence. Located at the Norfolk & Suffolk Aviation Museum at Flixton, she's in great condition though looking rather faded which has given her these odd blue-grey colour as a result. Since my last visit in 1999 the sagging airbrake has been closed up and she's been repositioned on new concrete pads in a more prominent position. She is apparently scheduled for a repaint.
