Hunter T.7 XL569 at East Midlands, 20th May 2006; author

XL569 is an ex-RAF trainer that, in common with the East Midlands Aeropark's other exhibits, is in generally good condition, sat on concrete blocks and generally with all vents etc. blanked off appropriately. She was looking very faded when I visited in 1999 but a re-visit in 2006 found her in the middle of a repaint - she's lost her all-over wrap-around camo and is being put back in an earlier scheme by the looks of things.
