Following signifcant design effort and manufacturing re-work after its grounding in 1949, emerged as a Jet Gyrodyne in Jan 1954. Allocated XD759 but this (like a number of others around this time) was duplicated with an existing Sabre F4, so re-allocated XJ389. To RAF Museum Cosford reserve collection by 1981, loan to Museum of Berkshire Aviation (Woodley) Jun 1994, still 2009, still 2018.
