I was talking to a local and his thought was that it will be restored over time. Google https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/6524542 for more information and images of orperational Aircraft in 1986. Russell

Nice shots of this old aircraft, I remember seeing them in service when I served in the RN in the 70's
