Sea Vixen XP924 'Foxy Lady'
Blurb, Incorporated, May 20, 2016
On 16th September 2014 the world's only airworthy de Havilland Sea Vixen was handed over to the Fly Navy Heritage Trust with a ceremony at RNAS Yeovilton. This historic event heralded a frantic race to get the aircraft ready for the 2015 airshow season. Establishing a new team of engineers and support staff, a mountain of paperwork and aircraft spares while integrating into one of the busiest military airfields in Europe; a lot of work lay ahead. Owned by Naval Aviation Ltd and funded by the Fly Navy Heritage trust, the Sea Vixen has now found its place alongside the significant naval aircraft displayed by the Royal Navy Historic Flight. The Sea Vixen will now represent a golden age in British naval aviation alongside the classic Swordfish and Sea Fury.Known affectionately as 'FOXY LADY', the Vixen is of the people, for the people and for the future: by the people. Recorded during the aircraft's first year with the FNHT, this pictorial record helps to convey the hard work that was undertaken to get the Vixen fit for purpose.
