Hunter F.6 XF526 at Birlingham, 13th June 2021; Alan Wilson

Part of a private collection belonging to farmer Graham Revill is this Hunter - XF526.

The airframe first flew in 1956, serving with 43, 56, 63 and 66 Sqn's.

She retired in 1981 becoming a ground instructional airframe with the No.1 SoTT at RAF Halton with the serial 8679M. Once Halton had finished with the airframe, she was purchased by Graham Revill who moved the aircraft to his farm in Worcestershire. Sadly, XF526 was in a poor state when she arrived, with several panels missing, no engine, no ejector seat, and a stripped cockpit. However, she's starting to look even worse as the years go by with very little attention. It's a great little collection and hopefully will receive some TLC in the near future...!
