Jaguar B XW566 at Farnborough Air Sciences Trust, 16th October 2008; Damien Burke

XW566 was the British Jaguar B prototype (B.08, the last prototype Jaguar built). First flown on 30th August 1971, carrying out training evaluation and nav/attack system trials until 1982. She was transferred to the Royal Aeronautical Establishment at Farnborough. She gained a raspberry ripple paint job and flew with the RAE until 1985, when she retired to ground instructional trials, where she remained for many years.

In 2004 the Farnborough Air Sciences Trust (FAST) acquired her, transporting the airframe to their museum site where she was placed on display, and can still be seen on display today.
