Hunter F.74A 543 at Nowra, July 2002; Bob Lawson

543 was donated to the museum last year and looks as though it has been out in the open for sometime prior. The paintwork has deteriorated and there is some surface corrosion on the underside adjacent to the airbrake. The gun packs have been removed and plated but some of these are loose. Now that it is permanently undercover, it should not deteriorate much more and, by the standard of the other exhibits, will probably get a lot of attention.
