T.4 XX842 - Everett Aero (stored, for sale), Bentwaters Airfield, Suffolk
Jaguar T.4 XX842 at Bentwaters, 15th March 2020; Damien Burke
f/f 04/06/1975, d/d 30/06/1975, to DARA St Athan 29/03/2006 for spares recovery, then to Everett Aero, Bentwaters, Suffolk 10/08/2006
First flown on 4th June 1975, I don't have any information on her early career but certainly by September 1984 she was flying with 41 Squadron (coded T). She had moved on to II(AC) Squadron by June 1988, and by 1990 was based at RAF Coltishall but wearing no squadron markings.
From at least May 1993 she was with 6 Squadron (coded EW) then from October 1998 she was with 16 Squadron (coded X, then PX from 2004). From August 2005 she was with 41 Squadron (coded FX) and ended her career with them, being retired and spares recovered before Everett Aero acquired her in 2006. Her wingless shell is in storage at the former RAF Bentwaters.
