Phantom FGR.2 XV474 at Duxford, 22nd April 2005; Damien Burke

XV474 served with 2, 17, 19, 23, 31 and 56 Squadrons, and was the first RAF F-4 to appear in the air defence grey scheme. Acquired by the OFMC after retirement because of the late Mark Hanna (himself an ex-F-4 pilot of course), the original intention was to fly her in private hands. Sadly that plan seems to have been a bit ambitious, and with Mark's untimely death the plan died with him. Since this picture was taken she's been moved indoors and can be found in hangar 4.
