Gnat T.1 XP503 at Bruntingthorpe, 1st March 1998; Damien Burke

First flown in August 1962, XP503 spent most of its active career with 4 FTS before returing to Hawker Siddeley for trials out of Bitteswell in 1969. Retired to instructional use at Halton by 1977, the aircraft was acquired by Phoenix Aviation at Bruntingthorpe in the mid 1990s before sale to an American owner in 2000. Registered as N503KC, there have been no reported sightings of the aircraft since - updates welcome.
