Hunter F.4 WV276 at Luftfahrt und Technik Museum, 11th September 2019; Alan Allen

WV276 was rather unloved once retired, first being used as a technical training aid at RAF Halton, then sat at Duxford slowly deteriorating, then moved to the Front Line Aviation Museum on the Isle of Wight where she lapsed further into decrepitude. The Museum eventually folded with the OFMC taking her back and moving her to storage at RAF Scampton with Hawker Hunter Aviation (HHA) and who put her up for sale. That sale took place and finally, she was moved to a safe home where she is now undercover and looked after. WV276 has now been cosmetically restored and repainted, looking much smarter than how she once was.
