Hunter F.74 501 at Singapore's Air Force Museum, 22nd January 2010; Flat Cap

Displayed at Singapore's Air Force Museum with a selection of other types operated by Singapore's defence forces, this F.74 served for some time with the RAF as XG260 before being retired and sold on to Singapore. Despite being out in the open the aircraft looks to be in superb condition, and at some point between 2002 and 2009 was lifted onto this huge stand - certainly advertises the Museum's presence well! Another Hunter resides inside the museum, which is superb - only the RAF Museum at Hendon even compares apparently, and admission is free!
