Jet Provost T3

The Jet Provost is a British jet-powered trainer aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force from 1957 to 1993. It was also successfully exported, serving in many air forces worldwide.

The Jet Provost T3 version, produced between 1958 and 1962, featured a more powerful Armstrong Siddeley Viper jet engine, ejector seats, a redesign of the airframe, and a shortened and strengthened version of the retractable tricycle undercarriage.

In the early 1990s, the RAF replaced the Jet Provost with the Short Tucano.

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter
