Aircraft that used to be at Duxford - where are they now?

Post by MiG_Eater »

I was thinking yesterday about aircraft that were resident at Duxford that are now no longer on display.

Ones that spring to mind are the Draken, Me.163, F-100 and Mi-24.

Does anybody know where these are now, and if they can be seen?

If type Duxford followed by the aircraft into google the info is all there for the first three. Nothing so far for the Mi-24 but I only had five minutes to spare

Thanks... I guess!

Perhaps the forum should be closed and just redirected to Google? :whistle:

Was the Sabre the museum swapped a Meteor for the one that is now up at Midland museum? if so they lost out on that trade.

Additional information:

Eurofighter Typhoon DA4, is still at Duxford - move date to be confirmed

Meteor F4 - VT229 (ex J Hawke) was loaned to NAM from April 1983 until October 1991, then transferred to Fantasy of Flight, Polk City, Florida (Kermit Weeks) - is this the same airframe mentioned above?

No, the Planes of Fame Meteor was a separate one. My list is only of IWM disposals and the Weeks Meteor was never with IWM.

That would make this one the Draken that was at Duxford. This photo is from a slightly dreary day in 2016.
