Jaguar GR.3A XZ364 at Selby, 29th May 2018; Jet Art Aviation

XZ364 first flew on the 3rd August 1976, being delivered to the RAF a couple of weeks later. In 1991, the airframe took part in the Gulf War, being painted in the ARFT colours (desert pink) with the nose art 'Sadman'. XZ364 completed several missions during the war, each mission was marked on the port side of the nose, under the cockpit.

The aircraft made its last flight into St Athan in November 2005 where she was stripped for spares. Like many Jaguars, XZ364 was sold in 2007 to Everett Aero who moved the airframe to Sproughton for storage. Sadly, she was scrapped, thankfully the cockpit section was saved and sold to a private collector who moved it to Tunbridge Wells. Over several years, lots of work and effort went into restoring the nose section, and repainting it back into the Gulf War colours she wore in 1991. The cockpit was then put up for sale on eBay in 2018, and was purchased by Jet Art Aviation who moved it to Selby.

The photo above shows the cockpit section not too long after Jet Art acquired her.
