Although XX900 seems to require very little in the way restoration, she does indeed require regular maintenance hence the reason for this dedicated thread!

Last weekend XX900 was taken out for a full static run…

Excellent videos Francis! The winding down of the spinning turbine is a neat idea to close off the last video..... cheesy

XX900 had her scheduled Anti-det run on Saturday 3rd May. I think Matt enjoyed his time in the back seat as well!?

Love it!

Brings home why they make such a big thing about the danger of arrester hooks in rigger trade training watching that thing hurtle ground-wards shocked

Quite why they focussed on fancy Navy bits like that in RAF training is anyones guess though huh

Anyways, great vid!

Love her weathered paint. Wasn't there a uk company that could apply a product to it to bring out the original pigment making it look new again??

There's not much paint left to bring out the pigment, it has to be said that, it been a few years since her last repaint, my records indicate 1991/2, was the last time, so when you think about it, 18 or so years, it hasn't done bad.
