Gannet AS.1 XA434 at Nowra, January 2010; David Kitchen/

Preserved in excellent condition at what used to be known as Australia's Naval Aviation Museum, then the National Museum of Flight, and now the Fleet Air Arm Museum is AS.1 XA434. Since 2002 she's obviously had some work done and is now on display with wings spread - and the formerly missing outer wing portions back in place. XA434's service record included spells with 724, 725, 816 & 817 Squadrons of the Royal Australian Navy.
