Bentwaters Cat roars.

Last Saturday, the Bentwaters Cold War Museum held a fast taxi photoshoot at the ex USAF base with their Jaguar GR1A XX741. They also performed a night shoot down at the old heavy weapons loop. Some pictures of the day.

Great photos! Might be worth a visit to the museum next time I'm in that neck of the woods.

I would refer to the BCWM website for opening dates. The Jag is in the restoration facility so not on general display without prior arrangement. Bob Viking hasn't replied yet.

Some video of the fast taxi. Bob was a padawan learner I believe of the partner in crime to the brother of Obi Wan?

Jaguars don't roar, they squeak!

Saucer of milk?

It roars more than any FG1 or FGR2 does. Damn that ITAR. Actually, one would struggle to find a team Toom to do so. Lots of people in the Toom World talk a lot. Only the UAS with a lot of dosh have done anything remotely like we have.

Yeah, but you still squeak rather than roar!

Milk?
