XS186 in the rain at Finningley 1967
XS186 captured whilst parked at Manby, probably around 1967 or early 1968
Now coded with a maintenance serial 8408M, at RAF Halton during the 1980’s
Almost the lowest point for XS186, derelict at North Luffenham in the 1990’s
Beyond saving? XS186 with nose cap missing sat at Everrett’s in 2003
Back from the brink, arrival at Metheringham in 2004
Rapid progress, XS186 in June 2004
Plenty to do in the cockpit, with few usable fittings remaining
The cockpit starts to take shape, after a monumental effort to rebuild every wiring loom and control
Slowly, inch by inch the engine is coaxed into position. The bay just does not look big enough to take it!
XS186 looking good in her new markings
