[History of the JP3] [Known survivors]

201 T.3's were ordered by the RAF (XM346-387, XM401-428, XM451-80, XN117, XN137, XN458-473, XN492-XN512, XN547-59, XN573-607, XN629-43).
The numbers of survivors are healthy, no doubt helped by the type staying in service until 1992.
A number however was scrapped in the 1960's and 70's, and a few have recently expired on fire dumps around the country.

This leaves the following as known survivors at the time of writing (all based in the United Kingdom unless otherwise indicated):-
To view the history and photographs of a particular aircraft click its serial number, and you will be taken to the relevant page if present.
If you can help with regards to photographs and information for any of the aircraft listed, or with particular examples that are not included in the list (there's bound to be some lurking out there!) please get in touch. If you also have any photos of aircraft that do not presently have an individual page, again let me know. You will be credited with any photos used on the site.
