Volunteers at the Hill Aerospace Museum in Utah have received permission to begin repainting McDonnell Douglas F-4C Phantom 64-0664. The 1964-built jet is currently displayed on a pedestal at the front of the museum. It flew flight test and weapons missions until March 1988, and has been on show at Hill since 2006. TONY SACKETOS

It will feature a recreation of an aircraft interior, including a specially designed disabled-access flight deck. Rare photographs and artefacts will also be on display. www.solentskymuseum.org
