Phantom F.3 ZE360 at Manston, 22nd September 2008; Francis Wallace

Having survived her time at Manston in rather better shape than XV411, ZE360 is used for aircrew extraction training and thus has her canopies removed. The cockpits are in very poor conditions and various other parts of the airframe show some damage. Sadly she is in much worse condition than the photo above from 2008 shows. However, the British Phantom Aviation Group (BPAG) have taken care of her and are slowly starting to restore her, and have been within the last few years. In August 2020 ZE360 was finally pulled out from where she had been sat in the grass since 2015 on to some hardstanding elsewhere within the facility.
