These pictures were sent to me by ( & © ) David Mulford who "graduated" from Linton in 1965.

Here are a couple of great shots, taken by ( & © ) Tony Hancock at Lakenheath in May 1967.

It's possible that XR701 is another Jet Provost that was used in 2 teams. Here's an undated photo that was offered on eBay, showing XR701 wearing McCaws Colours ( OK just the tip tank! )

XR701 was put up for sale in eBay - December 2010 & sold for $24,500 ( US ). This is what it looked like at the time of sale.
