Phantom FGR.2 XT907 at RAF Fairford, 20th July 1991; Damien Burke

Delivered on 25th July 1969, XT907 spent much of her time with 228 OCU, initially coded 907, then coded T. By summer 1990 she had joined 56 Squadron, coded W, and the year after had joined 74 Squadron at RAF Wattisham, retaining her W code.

She was retired in 1993 and allocated for ground instructional use at the Defence Ordnance Disposal School, Chattenden - in actuality for display as a gate guard.

In July 2014 she was disposed of, dismantled and transported to Bentwaters, where she was stored until 2019 when her nose was removed. The cockpit section has been relocated to Coventry, where it is being converted to a simulator. It is believed that the fuselage section of XT907 was sold and moved to an unknown location.
