Hunter F.1 WT619 at Manchester, 19th January 2006; Tom McGhee/demobbed.org.uk

One of relatively few surviving F.1s is this one, pictured at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. As you can see, some areas of the aircraft's skin have been removed to reveal the construction underneath, which gives visitors an idea of the methods used in building a 1950s jet fighter. The aircraft was kept in excellent condition and despite many years in the museum was not even dusty - however it has since been reclaimed by the RAF Museum, who it was on loan from, and is now at Cosford.
