Javelin FAW.7 XH837 at Caernarfon Airworld Museum, 27th May 2013; Alan Wilson

After a career with only 33 Sqn, XH837 was placed into storage at Kemble, before being reduced to a cockpit section. The nose section was then moved to Bicester, and later on to No.114 ATC Sqn as 8032M in 1968. XH837 was later moved to Northolt fire section before being disposed of in April 1986 to the Caernafon Airwold Museum.

The cockpit is displayed in a most imaginative manner, and at one point was even complete with the navigator making a quick exit!
