Restoration Programme XS421

XS421 first flew on 25th February 1965 and retired in 1975. The aircraft was sadly scrapped in 1976 although the cockpit managed to survive.
The cockpit is now going to C**tishall heritage centre on the 20th July 2023 to ultimately become part of their exhibitions once it has been brought up to display standards. XS421 flew from C**tishall in the 1960’s as part of the OCU so it’s a fitting return back. We also plan to show & share the journey of its return to C**tishall along with its restoration as it occurs. If you have any photographs of XS421 or genuine T5 parts which will help with our restoration project then please get in touch.

A lady brought in some pictures of her parents and their service at C**tishall where they met and married. James Stevenson was Mosquito aircrew posted to 23 Sqn in 1948 before moving to 141 Sqn at some point, where he met his wife to be, Patricia Spear from Portsmouth who joined the WAAF in 1942. Good to see a picture of the Adam and Eve as a pub, which is where their wedding reception was held.
