Hunter F.3 WB188 at Tangmere, 9th May 2005; author

The very first Hunter, indeed the prototype P.1067, has luckily survived to be preserved, due no doubt to its record-breaking status. Converted to F.3 form with pointed nose, reheat and new airbrakes, Neville Duke broke the world speed record in this very aircraft. She's a bit hemmed in at the corner of the hangar so a clear photo is a challenge!
