Phantom FGR.2 XT899 at Kbely, 16th August 2019; Kevan Vogler

XT899 served with 19 Sqn, 228 OCU, 6, 29, 92, 23 and 56 Squadrons and ended her active career at RAFG Wildenrath with 19 Squadron once again, gaining this overall blue scheme in 1991 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Royal Air Force. On retirement in 1992 the airframe was gifted to the then-Czechoslovakian Air Force in recognition of the contribution made by Czechoslovakian aircrew during WWII.

She was put on display in the Kbely Aviation Museum in the Czech Republic where she remains to this day. She was displayed outside for many years and became very faded as a result, but had a complete repaint in 2018/19 and has now been moved indoors, with wing tips folded.
