Duxford Sea Vixen Portfolio

I missed out on seeing this at Yeovilton a few years ago because it went u/s, this aircraft was the main drawcard for my visit to the Duxford Air Festival. I liked it before..now it has displaced the sabre as my favourite jet, What a gorgeous bloody machine this is.

Sadly the last time wheels down, hook down and locked... suffered a hydraulic failure on return to Yeovilton with an emergency belly landing the result
