The de Havilland Vampire T.11 Trainer first flew in 1950 and served the RAF until 1968. Built in 1952 at Christchurch, Dorset, WZ507 was delivered to the RAF in March 1953, serving with 229 OCU, 8FTS, 5FTS, 3 CAACU and finally CATCS at RAF Shawbury. Retired from RAF service in 1969, WZ507 became the first ex-military jet to be put onto the U.K. civilian register, after being restored to full flying condition in 1980 and registered as G-VTII. Bought by its present owners in 2002, in 2008 it was repainted in the markings of 219 Squadron, which operated Venom NF.2s from Driffield, Yorkshire during 1955-57, with a Vampire T.11 for training/hack duties. WZ507 is believed to be the only British-built, ex-RAF Vampire T11 flying in the world today and is based at North Weald airfield in Essex, England.

The de Havilland Vampire was a first-generation jet fighter which saw service in the immediate postwar period with the Royal Air Force fighter squadrons in the United Kingdom and Germany.
