The decision has been taken to allow up until the end of Feb 2020 for serious, costed and plausible offers to be received for the Marham Victor, XH673.

The aircraft will come free of charge but will have to be moved at the receiver’s expense. Any successful bidder will need to demonstrate that they have the financial means and practical capability to effect such a move.

The Spring and Summer months would present the best opportunity to carry out the move activity and a time scale for this can be negotiated.

Between now and the end of Feb, DESA will carry out a ‘scrapping survey’ in the event no workable bids are received. If the aircraft is to be scrapped, then Marham wish to preserve the tail fin and mount it as an appropriate memorial to the Victor force – in a similar location to where the aircraft is now.

Thanks to Richard Flagg for the photo.
