XA564 UK's only FAW.1 on display at RAFM Cosford. Gloster's last fighter was designed as RAF's first all-weather interceptor, entering frontline service in 1956 with No. 46 Sqn. at RAF Odiham. The FAW.1 was powered by a pair of Armstrong-Siddeley Sapphire Sa.6 10201 and 10301 engines of 36.9 kN thrust each that required a cartridge starter. The aircraft was fitted with the AI.17 radar and 30mm cannon. The initial production run of 40 FAW.1s also served as test platforms. A total of 435 Javelins were built and served in seventeen RAF squadrons plus OCUs, many being converted to different marks. (more of XA564)

United Kingdom - Air Force  Avro Lincoln
RF398 On display at RAFM Cosford. Designed to replace the Lancaster as a long range bomber, the Lincoln was intended to operate in the Pacific with Tiger Force. However, it was too late to see service in WW2 by the time VJ Day occurred. Thereafter, the Lincoln equipped 29 RAF squadrons and a number of flights and schools. One was shot down by MiG-15s over Germany in 1953. This aircraft with its Royal Blue spinners is from Bomber Command Bombing School (BCBS) during 1957-60. It was struck off charge in 1963.
