Since Zulu Juliet was withdrawn from service with Air UK in 1984 she has resided on the fire dump at Guernsey Airport, deteriorating badly and covered in graffiti.

In October 2018 Mark Hollingsworth acquired the nose section as far back as the second window. On the 30th of October Zulu Juliet was moved from the airport to a place of restoration in Guernsey. Mark plans to restore it and repaint in Air UK colours.

Following its repaint at Duxford the Society gained hangar time in April 2018 for the fitting of flaps, ailerons and nacelle fairings. It could have been an image taken in 1985 with WJ awaiting its next service.
