Hunter F.6 XF527 at RAF Halton, 28th February 2012; Richard E Flagg

XF527 was delivered to the RAF in September 1956, serving with Linton-on-Ouse's Station Flight from 1956. She also served with 19 Squadron, 66 Squadron, 111 Squadron, the AFDS, 4 FTS, and the TWU among others!

The airframe was grounded in 1981 and placed on the gate at Halton in 1986, and is still guarding the gates today. Canopy, and other perspex areas aside, she doesn't seem to be all that bad a condition. Being a gate guard, her insides have probably been heavily stripped.
