A HAWK jet XX154 will be coming to the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection (BDAC) this week from its current location at MOD Boscombe Down.

BDAC, which is located at Hangar 1 South, Old Sarum Airfield, has been chosen to be entrusted to preserve the aircraft for future generations.

It is envisaged that the move will see XX154 be taken by Chinook helicopter to BDAC.

The day chosen for the move is Wednesday (August 21), which celebrates the 45th Anniversary of the first flight of Hawk XX154.

This event has only been made possible with the cooperation and help from QinetiQ, RAF Odiham and the Royal Navy Engineers from RAF Brize Norton - Joint Air Delivery Test and Evaluation Unit (JADTEU).
