This Javelin, XH897, was built as an FAW7, later converted to FAW9 standard. It was delivered to RAF Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire in 1959. It went to Boscome Down in 1968 as a test aircraft where it was used in several test programs including the Concorde supersonic airliner. This is why it is painted in an unusual red and white colour scheme.
