We are pleased to welcome another RAF fast jet to our collection with the JAGUAR GR.1 XZ389 during mid-November 2023. It was kindly gifted to us by the RAF.

The wing and other dismantled parts will be re-attached during 2024 for display with our other fast jets.

Four months later and our fully-restored doors are back on Hangar 2, so that will give us a whole new capability for it and its Heritage contents.

Hangar 2 doors being Restored

After a few years' delay from Hangar 1's doors being restored, we're delighted to see that Maze Long Kesh Development Corps have finally received the budget to bring in the restoration contractors for a second time to finally make a go of restoring Hangar 2.

When they're restored and put back in later in 2023, it'll give us the potential to finally bring the likes of our Phantom FG.1 "007" out into the daylight of the compound at least, along with some of the other bigger aircraft that have been stuck in there for years due to the small roller door not being wide enough to allow an exit for the wide-winged aircraft.

We can hardly wait.
