Jaguar T.4 XX150 at Bentwaters , 22nd September 2008; Richard E Flagg

XX150 first flew on the 30th of September 1974 and was delivered to RAF Lossiemouth a month later for service with the Jaguar OCU initially, coded 'W'. In the 1980s she spent some time with 14 Squadron RAFG (coded AZ and AX at differing times). By 1996 she was with 16 Squadron, regaining the 'W' code and remained with them until early 2000. She was then upgraded to T.4 standard, gained the overall grey scheme and went back into service with 16(R) Squadron, coded 'PW'. By March 2005 she had moved to 41 Squadron, coded 'FY'. She was retired to RAF St. Athan with a final flight on 9th January 2006 and held for spares recovery.

Once stripped of parts, the airframe was sold to Everett Aero who moved her to Bentwaters Airfield with many other Jaguars. XX150 was sold and exported to Honeywell in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. She was used as part of the project to re-engine Indian Air Force Jaguars and then disposed of to the Pima Air & Space Museum. XX150 was road moved to the Museum alongside Jaguar XX737 on the 14th October 2021. The plan is that both will be restored and join Pima's other Jaguar XZ396 on static display at the Museum.
