Although I heard about the restoration project before, I remember how surprised I was when seeing XH558 for the first time.

The aircraft was parked on the apron while visiting an air show in the Netherlands; it was one of the first appearances of XH558 outside of the UK.

After seeing the aircraft taking off and performing a display I was really hooked up and I contributed to keeping XH558 flying ever since.

This year I will be visiting the RIAT in Fairford to see XH558 flying for the last time. I am grateful to all who helped to revive this great history icon. Thank you!
