Crashed 6 Feb 1976 into the Moray Firth four miles off Milltown, after both crew (Flt Lt A. I. Aitken and Flt Lt R. K. Jackson) ejected following a fuel leak. Wreckage recovered 10 Feb 1976, later allocated to the P&EE at Shoeburyness

Anecdote from Mr. Ian Hovey, based at Lossiemouth 1974-79: "We had XX137 in the hangar after it was fished out of the Moray Firth.....after 4 days, covered in barnacles and sea anemonies! We took the engines out and saw the fractured main fuel pipe, it was a poor quality weld that went on a 60 degree angle of the main fuel pipe. Filled up the engine compartment, flamed out the port engine. Splash!!"
