Sea Vixen FAW.2 XS576 at Duxford, 8th October 2006; author

FAW.2 XS576 is Duxford's example, owned by the OFMC and located indoors so no worries about the weather and armed with Red Top missiles, quite unusual for a preserved example - most have either no weapons or Firestreaks instead. She's seen here shortly after moving into the restoration area within the new Airspace hangar.
