01/11/08 Museum Receives Jetstream T1 XX477

Jetstream T1 XX477

On 1st November Aeroventure received the fuselage of Jetstream T1 XX477.

The Jetstream was donated by Cynthia Whitfield on behalf of her husband Terrance Whitfield who died in a flying accident near Rotherham in August 2006. The museum intends to name the Jetstream in his memory.

XX477 also had a civilian registration 'G-AXXS'. These photos from Philip Jarvis.

The aircraft crashed on take-off from RAF Little Rissington on 1st November 1974 when both engines failed due to a fuel problem shortly after it was delivered.

The fuselage was later converted to a Dominie Procedures Trainer (which explains the additional doorway that was cut into the port side) and carried instructional airframe serial number 8462M, operating in this role at RAF Finningley.
