What we know about this image :

Depicted dramatically banking to starboard the plane, ex-RAF Jet Provost T5 serial XW405, arrived from storage in pieces and was fully stripped, repainted and rebuilt by students and staff to restore it to external display condition. The aircraft retains the eyecatching red, white and grey colours of the RAF Flight Training School circa late 1980s, but for aesthetic reasons the decision was made not to reinstate the plane’s squadron markings and serial numbers.
