XH558 on Approach to RAF Coningsby 28th August 2011
XH558 diverted to RAF Coningsby, when XH558 experienced a hydraulic failure after take-off on Sunday en-route to Dunsfold "Wings and Wheels". This happened during a practice display over Rutland Water.
The crew called a 'Pan Pan' which is standard practice in such a situation, and as a precaution diverted to RAF Coninsgby to land without incident with the aid of the braking parachute.due to a suspected hydraulic problem.

Worked flat out to give XH558 as long a life as possible! Hoping for a positive future.
