Vampire FB5 VV217 - Location

Post by willroney » Sat May 26, 2018 1:53 pm

A very long time ago, in the 1980s, there was a Vampire VV217 next to the ATC parade ground in Bury St Edmunds.
Time has moved on and it moved...
Demobbed had it Up North in 2010, and there have been hints of a depleted airframe at RAF Barnham in 2012.

Does anyone know if/where this aircraft still exists?

Believed to be with the de Havilland Aircraft Museum but stored off site awaiting restoration.
