To keep XM655 in the best possible condition and in the public eye, we are staging regular fast taxi runs. The first was staged on 16th February 1997, and a crowd of 300 braved appalling weather to watch the run. The cold and rain resulted in some minor problems with the aircraft afterwards but they were soon fixed. Sqn Ldr Dave Thomas, aircraft captain, said after the run "Everything felt right!".
