Ex-G-AMXA. Shown the day after its undercarriage collapsed on delivery to the Strathallan Collection’s grass airfield at Auchterarder, Perthshire, following its retirement from 51 Sqn, RAF Wyton. It was one of three R2 reconnaissance aircraft that flew with the squadron. It was eventually broken up when the Strathallan Collection was dispersed, but apparently its nose survives at Gatwick.

I remember seeing film of this years ago on TV. Comet airliner and grass runway are always an uncomfortable combination.
