Meet “Foxy Lady”
Sensational photographs have captured the iconic all-British Sea Vixen, the last airworthy model left in existence, soaring above the Devon coastline.
The twin-boom, twin-turbo jet fighter flew during the height of the Cold War off Royal Navy aircraft carriers, but now there is only one left for use in displays.
Spectacular pictures of the ‘Foxy Lady’ were shot in a project organised by Navy Wings – a heritage arm of the Royal British Navy, and supported by the Fly Navy Heritage Trust.
Commander Simon Hargreaves OBE RNR took the jet-fighter to the sky, a specimen at the pinnacle of Britain’s military aviation during the 60s and 70s.
