Guess she was modern military up until the point she touched down, exiting service and ending almost 50 years of
1-11 flying in the UK, very sad.
They were so common at Birmingham when I first started spotting we hardly used to look up when they came and went, now sadly missed.I was very happy to catch the old girl blast out of Boscombe at the end of last summer, noisy as hell with two trails of black smoke :)
Thanks for posting, not seen any other shots anywhere so guess you're the only person to document the last few moments of her flying career. Delighted she will be cared for but I suppose the next time we see any photos they will be in the classics section.

Thanks again

Nice one, glad someone was there to catch it. (I'd imagine a lot more was that don't use UKAR!) would have loved to have got down but business come first. Love the first photo though, looks quite grubby!
