Hunter GA.11 XF301 at Chino, 21st June 2002; Chris Thorn

One of the first batch of Hunters to go to private owners in the US, XF301 was shipped over in bits and slowly reassembled. It is owned by Dr. Garrett Moscos who has approval to display it at airshows and is based at Chino. While a GA.11, Garrett has modified it somewhat - with a standard nose cone instead of Harley light, dummy cannon barrels in uncovered gunports, Sabrinas and a tailcone from a T.7 or 8 complete with working brake-chute. He has also modified the engine starter so that he can use cartridge for effect or compressed air. Sadly she lost her grey/white FAA scheme before being sold, but the overall grey has weathered well and she has not needed to be repainted since retirement from FRADU!
