- Related Products
Commissioned as a keep-sake of a momentous occasion, our ‘Farewell to Flight’ Medal is manufactured using a traditional style brass based die which is then struck and filled with enamel colours to a striking design. The medal has a weight of approx. 45g and being 50mm in diameter and 3mm in thickness, feels surprisingly heavy when held. It is complemented with an AVRO winged monogramed presentation box.
The face of the medal depicts XH558 in her familiar wrap-around camouflage scheme with a white enamel background and gold borders. On the reverse is a head on view of 558 on the runway, air brakes and braking parachute deployed with a union flag background, symbolising the final landing of “The Spirit of Great Britain’s” illustrious flying career.
