  Built in 1958, this Vampire was donated to the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund after retirement from the Swiss Air Force, in Swiss service she was U-1216. She was later given the civil registration G-BVLM on the 6th April 1994, before passing to the Royal Jordanian Air Force Historic Flight as 209.
