Sepecat Jaguar GR.1A XX741

Recommended Posts

Yesterday at Bentwaters Cold War Museum made a significant step to getting Sepecat Jaguar GR.1A XX741 back into working order for ground displays. Both engines were run and the aircraft was able to taxy under its own power. This is now the only working Jaguar outside of India following the withdrawal of RAF ground running jets from Cosford.

Awesome !!!!!!  I used to love the rumble in the chest that the Ardour produced when starting up. I also remember working on EJ..........my mothers initials.

Keep up the great work chaps.

Sentimentally yours :)

Only for the occasional detachment as a clingon; I was in ASF for 6 1/2 years.  I was at Brawdy before that on Hawks, another great Adour powered aircraft :)

Very interesting to see, would love to see this one on a static display. 

 

I was fortunate enough to see some Jaguars parked up at an airport in India a few years ago, that was used for both civil/military purpose (and very odd to see them next to some Sukhoi Flanker variants). Although it was from a distance and through an aircraft cabin window unfortunately, so wasn't able to see which variants they were.
