This Jet Provost was built in 1961 and was delivered to the RAF in May of that year. It served at RAF Cranwell through the first half of the 1960s before being bounced back and fore various training units until its flying career came to an end in 1990 and was then used as a ground instructional airframe at RAF Cosford. It was sold to Global Aviation in 1993 before being used by Brooklands College again as a ground instructional airframe. In 2014 it went on display at the Brooklands Museum.
