Would love some cockpit photos of T8M. Iam building a 1/48 scale model to add to my Hunter collection. The Hunter was my first aircraft at RAF Chivenor and though I have worked with many and varying types since, it is my favourite.

Great Hunter pics. Worked on them on 229OCU Chivenor/Brawdy 1964-1976. Memories! Talking about getting a few scars, even at 5ft 6in it didn't pay to stand up too quickly in the main u/c bay!

Brings back memories! I was a cpl afr fitt on 230 OCU at RAF Chivenor from Aug 72 to about Oct 73. Spent my time on 2nd line servicing checks on FGA Mk 9 & T Mk 7's.
Got a few scars from the type, eg, one in the back from the IFF aerial & one on top of the head from corner of one of the flaps!
