Hunter F.4 WB188 at Boscombe Down, July 1st 2000; author

Painted up as WB188 and actually signed by Neville Duke himself to make the point! However, the real identity of this cockpit section isn't known, other than that it was made at Hawker's Blackpool factory. It's in excellent external condition but the cockpit is missing a few instruments. Since this picture was taken Mark Templeman has acquired it and by September 2000 will have moved it to Portishead, where he intends to complete the restoration. Any information on the real identity of the nose section would be gratefully received by Mark - he has found that it was originally painted white, and suspects it may have flown with the Institute of Aviation Medicine, so any info on serials of white F.4s with the IAM would be handy for a start!
