Today sees the 30th anniversary of ZE360`s delivery flight from RAF Wattisham to Manston where she would take on the new role as a training aid at the resident fire training school. The aircraft was delivered by pilot Ian Hargreaves and navigator Ray Jones, who attempted a Mach 2 power run over the North Sea en-route. This was aborted at Mach 1.96 when an intake ramp went out of phase causing the right engine to surge.

More information on the aircraft and its history can be found here and pics of the current restoration work are available in the ZE360 Restoration Gallery.
