G1148. Britannia 9Q-CJH taxis in after arrival at Filton in 1993. The aircraft was on route to Zaire having been parked on the aerodrome at Havana, Cuba for a number of years. It came via Dublin, where it picked up Roger Hargreaves who was responsible for the aircraft's final return to Kemble in 1997. This is where it now resides, in its former RAF guise as XM496, and looked after by members of the Bristol Britannia XM496 Preservation Society.
