SEPECAT Jaguar T.4 XX838/PR, RAF No.16 (Reserve) Squadron, Coltishall.
SEPECAT Jaguar T.4 XX838 was built in 1975 to T.2A (trainer) standard and subsequently became one of only eleven airframes to receive further upgrade to the final T.4 training variant of the aircraft, remaining with the RAF until the Jaguar was finally withdrawn from service in late 2006. For this RAF 100 series release, she is presented wearing the colours of RAF No.16 (Reserve) Squadron, which acted as the Operational Conversion Unit for future Jaguar pilots, following its reformation at RAF Lossiemouth in 1991. With its heritage as one of the oldest Royal Air Force Squadrons, the units badge features two crossed keys, one gold and one black, which can be traced back to the formation of the unit at Saint-Omer in 1915 and the Squadron’s proud army cooperation role. Providing vital aerial reconnaissance of enemy positions over the Western Front during the Great war, the two keys represent the Squadron’s effectiveness at unlocking the enemy’s secrets by day or by night, providing military planners with the very latest aerial battlefield information, at a time when the aeroplane was fast becoming an essential tool of war.
This is a 1:72 scale model aircraft and is suitbale for ages 14+.
