The individual history document on Ju 87G W.Nr. 494083 from RAFM dated 2007 states that in March 1967 it was moved to RAF Henlow along with other AHB aircraft for possible use in BoB film. It was repainted, including W8+A code, dummy wooden dive brakes added, leg sirens, dummy bomb, and rear gun position modified. Engine run at least once and probably taxied. Permission to restore to airworthy obtained from MoD but inspections revealed it would be more involved than first thought, and modified Proctors and scale models were used instead. It was during this time that W.Nr. was confirmed as 494083.
It was loaned to RAF Colerne for display in June 1972 and wing and tail were damaged in transit. Repainted at St. Athan in 1975 with RI+JK code, then moved outside Hendon in November. The first time I saw 494083 it was sitting in the grass in front of Hendon in April 1976 (Along with Me 262, Me 410, V-1, and V-2.) and I took a few pictures with a cheap Kodak. They are very dark and I’ve been meaning to scan them in and lighten them up to look for details, and I’ll do that today. I do know that it has a yellow tail band that I haven’t seen in earlier pictures, and it should still have the modified rear gun position because that wasn’t restored to original until 20 years later.
