Jaguar GR.1 XX763 at Bournemouth Aviation Museum, 27th September 2013; Richard E Flagg

XX763 was built by BAC at Warton with it first taking to the skies in May 1975. The aircraft retired from service in April 1985 at Shawbury where it was stored.

XX763 was then road moved to St Athan where it was issued to No.4 School of Technical Training as 9009M for ground training. With the Jaguars retirement in 2005, the RAF didn't have much use for it and was sold to Transworld Aviation Trading of West Sussex in 2007.

After a few years in storage, the aircraft was loaned to the Bournemouth Aviation Museum which arrived in the Autumn of 2009. The volunteers have done a great job at restoring and repainting XX763 into 226 OCU camouflage scheme which it wore in its latter days.
