XL444 prior to departure for Nellis AFB Red Flag Exercise 1978/2. L to R: 'Happy' Jack Bowie Crew Chief, Pat Keating Nav Rad, Ray Butterworth Co-Pilot, Pat Hewitt Captain, Geoff Lidbetter AEO, Reg Breeze Nav Plot and Cliff Doe Crew Chief. Cliff Doe recalls:

"The aircraft, which 35 Sqn inherited from 617 Sqn during 1978 was known as 'Trouble Four' due to a long-running persistent fuel leak which neither 617 or 35 fitters managed to cure. On its return from Nellis after the two week detachment, the fuel leak had mysteriously cured itself! Just shows what Vegas can do!"
