Hunter F.58 J-4091 at Bruntingthorpe, 25th May 2008; author

Making a change from the ex-Swiss F.58s that are flying, this one is firmly ground-bound, but makes up for it by performing regular fast taxi runs at Bruntingthorpe. Having seen the AVPIN starter exhaust dry out a soaked runway tile in about 2 seconds flat I suddenly realised just why the ground crew stand so far away when the engine is being started! She has been repainted at least once while at Bruntingthorpe and still looks good as a result; she's pictured here preparing for a fast taxi run on a typically wet Bruntingthorpe open day.
