Sea Hawk FGA.6 XE327 at Bruntingthorpe, 11th August 2001; author

A long-time member of the Trout Lake Air Force, XE327 left Kings Langley for Bruntingthorpe in August 1999 and was repainted by the new owner soon afterwards. The colours weren't right when seen at the September 99 Cold War Jets Open Day at Brunty, but better painted the wrong colour than left to rot - the harsh winter of 2000/2001 has dulled down the colours even further.The aircraft is in pretty good condition considering all the time spent outdoors though there is a fair bit of corrosion to be found; the cockpit has suffered from the ingress of water and the canopy has clouded. However, as seems to be the case with all Sea Hawks that arrive at Bruntingthorpe, she's moved on to a new owner - the museum at Hermeskeil in Germany.
