Victor K.2 XL164 at Charlwood, 22nd April 2007; Richard E Flagg

This is XL164, which hasn't been quite so lucky. Badly damaged during the scrapping of the complete aircraft, the nose section has most of the bottom ripped out and several holes punched in the sides. Saved from total destruction by Peter Vallance, let's just hope Saucy Sal eventually gets restored - she's been sat here for quite some time now and the interior is still basically gutted. As of late 2011 she is now up for sale - see here.
