RAF No. 6 Squadron holds the distinction of being the longest continuously serving Squadron in the world. Formed on January 31, 1914 No. 6 Squadron remained operational continuously until 2007, when it disbanded as the last Jaguar Squadron. XX738 represents one of the Squadron's aircraft as they were typically seen in their final days flying out of RAF Coningsby. The RAF has announced that No. 6 Squadron will be the third operational front line squadron equipped with the Eurofighter Typhoon, but production delays to Tranche 2 aircraft have meant that 'the Flying Canopeners' are yet to reform. However, they still remain scheduled to be the next squadron to receive the Typhoon, the RAF's latest front line jet aircraft.Detailed cockpit with pilot figure

The SEPECAT Jaguar is an Anglo-French supersonic multi-role combat aircraft originally used by the British Royal Air Force and the French Armée de l'Air and is still in service with several other countries. Conceived in the 1960s as jet trainer with a light ground attack capability, the requirement for the aircraft soon changed to include reconnaissance and tactical nuclear strike roles. First flown on September 8, 1968, the Jaguar served with the Armée de l'Air as the main strike and attack aircraft until July 1, 2005 and with the Royal Air Force until April 2007. It was replaced with the Panavia Tornado and Eurofighter Typhoon in the RAF, and with the Dassault Rafale in the Armée de l'Air. The Jaguar was exported to India, Oman, Ecuador and Nigeria.
