This aircraft entered service with the Royal Navy in November 1960 as a Mk1 and served at sea with various Fleet Air Arm units until being converted to FAW2 status during the period 1963-65. She served with a number of shore establishments until March 1970 at which time she joined 899 Squadron, first on HMS Eagle and thereafter at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Llanbedr. Her naval career ended in January 1980 when she was reputed to be the last Sea Vixen to fly in Royal Navy livery. After a spell with Flight Refuelling Ltd at Hurn, XJ580 was purchased by Troika Developments Ltd and placed on display at Christchurch. She was delivered to Tangmere in 2000 for restoration and permanent display. (From Tangmere Museum website)
