Hawker Hunter T.7

Pilot's notes
From the flight of the first prototype in 1951, it was clear the Hunter was a thoroughbred.
Highly agile and capable of going supersonic in a shallow dive, all the various marques of Hunter were a delight to fly and much admired by their pilots. Many still fly today in the hands of private owners. Total production was 1,985. 79 types flew with 17 air forces. This aircraft is a portrayal of XL609 of 56 Sqn, RAF Wattisham in the early 1960's.
