Hunter T.7 XL573 at Yeovilton, 21st September 2002; author

T.7 XL573 was owned and operated by Barry Pover's Classic Jet Aircraft Co. and was a regular airshow performer some years ago, however she doesn't venture out anywhere near as often now and has been grounded since around 2007. She's spent time at North Weald being maintained by The Jet Centre for a new owner but has since returned to Exeter, first owned by David Hayes and now by George Begg of Global Aviation. She's seen here, sadly static, at the 2002 Yeovilton Air Day. Recently put up for sale, in March 2011 she was bought by new owner Mark Stott who intended, with Hunter Flying at Exeter, to get her back in the air in time for the Hunter 60th Anniversary airshow at Kemble in 2011. Sadly it wasn't to be but she did get back into the air later in the year and has since flown into Hunter Flying's new base at St. Athan.
