This is XM715; another one not just parked out in the rain as a dead static exhibit, no! She's a living, breathing example of the Victor, and regularly performs engine runs, and fast taxi runs on open days at Bruntingthorpe. XM715 was produced in the fourth B.2 batch and served with 139 and 100 squadrons, 232 OCU, 543 squadron, 232 OCU again and was converted to K.2 standard (ninth such conversion) and ended up with 55 squadron before being sold to the Walton family and preserved at Bruntingthorpe aerodrome. British Aviation Heritage keep her in tip-top condition. Watching XM715 screaming off in a cloud of blue smoke and disappearing into the distance with with her huge brake chute billowing is truly a sight and sound worth experiencing! Not only does she sport her Granby nose art ('Teasin' Tina'), she also sports some rather more unusual nose art on the port side - a certain television character... Victor Meldrew of course! Over the summer of 1998 XM715 was completely repainted but seven years later she's beginning to look a bit faded once more.
