|THE JET PROVOST T.1|
|[History of the JP1]||[Known survivors]|
|As there were only 12 aircraft built by Hunting Percival in 1954/5, the Jet Provost T.1 has not surprisingly survived in large
The example retained by the manufacturers for structural tests is presumed to have been scrapped in the 1960's.
Of the 10 RAF machines one example, XD692, was written off in an accident on 30th August 1956 and was later scrapped, and seven examples were all scrapped at RAF Shawbury on the 9th May 1960 (XD675-80 and XD693).
The last production Jet Provost T.1, XD694, was converted into a T.2 on the production line, and scrapped on October 13th 1960.
This leaves the following as survivors at the time of writing (all
based in the United Kingdom unless otherwise indicated):-
|G-AOBU||Kennet Aviation, North Weald Airfield, Essex ('XD693')||In store||01/12/09|
|XD674||RAF Museum collection, RAF Cosford, Shropshire||On display||01/12/09|
