Jet Provost T5

The BAC Jet Provost was a British jet-powered trainer aircraft that was in use with the Royal Air Force from 1955 to 1993. It was originally developed by Hunting Percival from the earlier piston engine-powered Percival Provost basic trainer. The Jet Provost T5 was the most advanced version operated by the RAF, with 95 in service through the 1970s and 1980s. The ‘JP5’ which will be attending the Air Show on static display is ‘XW324’ which is owned by Jeff Bell and flies in an authentic colour scheme to represent 6FTS based at RAF Finningley.
