The first 100 Fireballs have generally fared well - a good number survive.
The list below certainly understates the survivors and will be updated as and when new information comes to light. If you are able to assist in this please contact the UKFA Archivist via the Contacts page.
If you are interested in owning a vintage Fireball please also contact the Archivist as there are usually one or two examples available at any time (not necessarily first 100 but certainly 'vintage').
