An evening with Navy Wings

at RNAS Yeovilton, Somerset

E

We’re working with Navy Wings at Yeovilton to offer an evening of all things Fleet Air Arm (FAA).

Under the Navy Wings banner sits the Royal Navy Historic Flight (RNHF), which boasts one of the world’s most extensive collections of airworthy naval aircraft, charting the history of the FAA from the introduction of the Fairey Swordfish in 1936, right through to 2006 and the retirement of the Sea Harrier FA.2.

A pair of Hawker Sea Furies, FB.11 VR930 and the recently restored T.20 VX281, will both be available for the event alongside Sea Vixen FAW.2 XP924, showing the development of naval fighter aircraft.

Alongside the Hawker pair will sit Fairey Swordfish with Mk.I W5856, the oldest surviving example of the type, and Mk.II LS326 taking centre stage.

Finally, the RNHF have confirmed their Chipmunk T.10 will also be present. The aircraft is one of the flight’s lesser seen aircraft, being used in a training role for tailwheel conversion.

We’re still working to confirm additional aircraft in the time we have before the event, and we’ll be letting you know of any extra aircraft that will be under the floodlights both here and on our Facebook page.
