    Jaguars!

    I'm seeking some help with a project I'm tackling on the Jaguar. Does anyone know of any former Jaguar people and where I might be able to reach them? I'd really like to get some information on operations, handling, things like that.

    Also, I'm on the hunt for photographs from the earlier days in the Jaguar's career, especially the prototypes, early production aircraft and export machines.

    If anyone has any pointers I'd be very grateful!

      I'm an ex Jag engineer for my sins.. I've even flown in and have done aeros in the old leaf blower..

      This is a good start for you

      Your other best bet to contact pilots is here... But do expect some light jibes about the Jag from the rest of the EX Raf bods.

            Isn't that a later Jag Robert? The early ones didn't have wrap around Camo but a light grey underside and some of the early RAF ones didn't have Laser designator noses.

              Ooops. The only photo I can find from 1970 Farnborough was a model. However from a very wet 1974 here are a few.
              And just out of interest a 2 seater at Lossiemouth 1978

                I'm surprised you found those, the pre chisel nose were only a couple I believe, the TBird was minus it of course, along with the Stb gun (bay used to carry the displaced avionics from the addition of a second seat) and the rudder damper amongst other bits and bobs.

                  The first 23 S models did not have the chisel nose but the A style nose. They were retrospectively modded. The Farnborough Single Seater is XX108, the first production S variant that never served with the RAF, but was modified to be the International demonstrator I do believe.
