On 22/10/1981 XT905 was involved in an unusual incident at RAF Coningsby. The nosewheel gear failed to extend on approach and pilot Flt Lt Tim ‘Zip’ Nolan was forced to land the aircraft on the main gear only. Luckily both aircrew (Nolan and Flt Lt Jack Hamill) escaped uninjured but the aircraft needed extensive repair.
To mark this occasion, the BPAG are issuing a special photographic print. Featuring a selection of official photos from that day, these have been signed and hand numbered by Tim Nolan himself and are available in very limited numbers- just 25 were produced. Cost is £25 each and these are up on the BPAG webstore now. See here for more details- http://www.phantomerchandise.co.uk/prints-posters Please note- framed pic is for demonstration purposes only.
