Engineering students at Suffolk New College have brought a former armoured car back to life for the Royal Air Force.
Servicemen and women at RAF Honnington flew to Trinity Park to collect the renovated car at the Suffolk Show, a year after frist contacting the college with the request.
The vehicle had sat outside a museum in Portsmouth for the last 12 years but now it has been given a new lease of life thanks to the dedicated students.
Group Captain David Wilkinson from the RAF, said: "The students have done a wonderful job in repairing the vehicle and by doing so they have helped recreate a piece of history."
Stephen Davis, head of engineering at Suffolk New College, added: "The students have been working on the car as part of their course.
