This is a rare ”T-Bird” Twin Stick variant of the Tornado with full flying controls in both the front and rear cockpits. Airframe hours are a ridiculously low 935 hrs. Fitted with RB199 Mk103 afterburning turbofan engines, this former Royal Aircraft Establishment Trial Aircraft was used for Sea Harrier FA2 radar trials and for avionics research and evaluation.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The aircraft was fully assembled on 7th December 2015 prior to us dismantling and extracting for road haulage. The photos showing the assembled aircraft were taken that day prior to disasembly. Aircraft was fully fueled with a defuel conducted on 3rd November 2015 when external power was last applied. All fuel pumps were run during the defuel process. Internal battery electrical power was last applied on 7th Dec 2015 as part of the dismantling process and cockpit lighting systems tested at this time. The aircraft is now in storage in a heated hangar as per the photo below. The aircraft was hydraulically sound prior to being dismantled with accumulators charged. This should give an idea of how intact and complete this aircraft is, truly an incredibly rare opportunity to own one of our most exciting aircraft to date!

A mass of Documentation and paperwork is available including over 70Kg of job cards dating back to 1976 when the aircraft was first flown.

There is no corrosion, the paint and markings are fresh and bright, mechanical components appear to be in tip top condition. The aircraft looks like it landed yesterday!
XZ132 spent the last 22 years in a heated building at RAF College Cranwell where she was used for instructional purposes. Nothing horrendous a mere training aid for baby Engineering officers (who in general aren’t allowed to play with spanners) to be taught about aerodynamics, flying controls and documentation. Jet Art acquired the aircraft in November 2013 and have spent the last three months preparing the aircraft to the highest possible standard, fitting gun pods and a full complement of pylons, sourcing a selection of missing external panels the majority of which have been purchased as brand new surplus stock items. The end result is stunning as you can see from the photos. The aircraft comes with a correct Rolls Royce Pegasus Mk103 engine not currently fitted to the aircraft but in a wheeled transit stand. For display purposes a photo decal engine blank is fitted in the intake as well as a full set of engine nozzles.
