Hunter T.7 N-315 at Long Marston, June 1998; author

As you can see from this rather old photo, back in 1998 this ex-Dutch twin-tub Hunter looked in pretty poor condition and the paintwork was a mess. Internally she was doing rather better; however more than a decade later the airframe had - along with the others at Long Marston - effectively become derelict. Thankfully N-315 now has a new owner (as do most of the other former JAPG airframes) - and she has been transported to the premises of Alba Power, who service Avon and Olympus gas turbines. They finished off her restoration beautifully with a complete repaint into her original Dutch colours - an up to date photo would be welcome!
