On 14th November 2009 three members of Wattisham Airfield Museum travelled to former RAF North Luffenham to start dismantling Blackjack.

The first operation was to remove the tail section and bring it back to Wattisham.

On 28th November 2009 the team returned to North Luffenham and with the aid of a forklift the wings were removed and along with the fuselage placed on a lorry.

Members then drove the lorry back to Wattisham and with the help of the Army the wings and fuselage were lifted off ready for reassembly.
