    Bristol Sycamore XG544 - Now in Australia

    Just a quickie, but does anyone know what happened to Bristol Sycamore HR14 XG544? Last rumoured to be in Wales!?! Cheers!!!
    Apathy is as powerful as any bulldozer and equally cherished by developers. Others cannot measure the importance of our heritage with OUR silence.

    There is an airworthy Sycamore in Austria (not Australia) painted in RAF colours, but that example has no British military history. It was painted up as XG544 but now sports XG545 according to the report in the following link:

    SFAIK the real XG544 is not with Red Bull.

    Sycamore XG544, was last seen in Cornwall years ago, alleged to have gone to Wales, but not seen since.

    The Red Bull example is not XG544, it is an ex-German Forces example painted in RAF colours.

    There was one that was on a trailer, spotted a few months ago at Bankstown in New South Wales.
