Anyone interested, I have original framed in flight photographs of the first Percival Prince, commissioned and the Hunting Percival, from around the 1950's.

I am looking to sell them.

I did my flying scholarship at Luton in 1963 and watched the jet Provosts coming back from airtest. 2 years later I was learning to fly on the MK3 and Mk4 versions in the RAF, and later as an RAF QFI I instructed for 4 years on the Mk5

I was apprenticed at Hunting Aircraft and worked both on the prototype and the production versions of the Jet Provost used by the RAF as a training aircraft. The prototypes had the long stalky undercarriage often shown in early pictures whereas the production versions were equipped with the short and practical undercarriage shown in the diagram. The early production aicraft built at Luton were not armed, however modifications were introduced to allow later production aircraft to carry weapons, I know as I worked on the installations.
Some Luton built aicraft were therefore capable of carrying some armament, however when Hunting Percivals were sold to the British Aircaft Corporation they re-engineered it into the very competant Strikemaster version. Which was the version used very succesfully in Oman.

I don't think it's correct to show the JP as having any armament - I think that was only the follow-on Strikemaster (but I might be wrong!)

Look under BAC Strikemaster for the rest of the story.

Was this the forerunner of the Strikemaster which was greatly respected while in service in the Sultanate of Oman.
