Hunter F.4 WV276 at Scampton, 26th August 2004; demobbed.org.uk

WV276 was rather unloved once retired, first being used as a technical training aid at RAF Halton, then sat at Duxford slowly deteriorating, then moved to the Front Line Aviation Museum on the Isle of Wight where she lapsed further into decrepitude. The Museum folded, the OFMC took her back and moved her to storage at Scampton with Hawker Hunter Aviation and put her up for sale. That sale took place and finally it looks like this Hunter has a safe home that is looking after her in the form of the Luftfahrt und Technik Museum in Germany. Since this photo was taken she's been cosmetically restored and repainted.
