RAF Lyneham Gate Guardian

De Havilland Comet C2 XK699 "Sagittarius" was unveiled as RAF Lyenham's gate guardian by HRH The Princess Royal on the 22nd June 1987.
These photos of XK699 were taken about 4 weeks before the unveiling.
With the closure of Lyneham in 2012 the airframe was scrapped - possibly the nose section was saved and moved to Boscombe Down.
