Having noted that Hawk ZA101/G-HAWK has now been preserved, what about the first prototype/pre-production Hawk T1 XX154. I have noted on-line that in December it was withdrawn from use at Boscombe Down. Is this an appropriate time for it to be preserved in one piece with other prototype aircraft at Cosford, before it is reduced to spares etc. What does the forum think??

For what it's worth, XX154 will be airlifted by Chinook to it's new home at BDAC Old Sarum today.

I noticed it in the aviation press recently, it's great news. It's good that someone had the foresight to get the aircraft preserved complete.
