    Default Javelin XH871

    Hi,

    Trying to figure out the fate of Javelin XH871;

    Air Britain has it as with 64 Sqn and SOC 17/04/64.
    Ejection-History.org.uk has with 5 or 11 Sqn Geilenkirchen. Aircraft suffered centre line closure on both engines. Crew ejected over Belgium 07/11/63.
    ukserials.com has it as written off 07/11/63, with 64 Sqn and to Bovington for fire practise.

    Anyone know the correct fate of this aircraft?

    Thanks.

    Alex

    Hi Alex

    Roger Lindsay s Service History of Javelin, has XH871 , force landed Binbrook with control failure, 64 Sqn, 7.11.63

    Repaired on squadron but declared Cat 4 "Rogue" aircraft in April 64 due to repeated aileron snatch. Later dismantled for spares.

    cheers Peter
