Can't link to the second and third but can access them in Youtube from the 1st link. It is a real shame indeed :(

Thanks for posting these.

You just would not believe this is the same aircraft I walked around and climed in two weeks ago.

It makes me feel very sad to see how she Is now, compared to how she was then,
splendid, unique, and noisy...... :( :(

not much chance of her ever running again as she has only 2 engines and lots of parts missing

Well that pic was taken in 1978 by arrangement. 50Sqn wanted a pic of one of our a/c streaming and knew I was keen to get one too.

I was provided with a radio to Air Traffic who kept me informed on which landing he was going to stream, as he was doing a few 'rollers' before coming in.
