Hunter F.6 XJ690 at Hurn, 19th July 2020; Grahame Bann

This Hunter is made up largely from the fuselage of T.7 ET-273 with the nose of FGA.9 XJ690 grafted on, which people would suggest is an F.6. Once displayed near the Bournemouth Aviation Museum (ex Jet Heritage) at Bournemouth (Hurn) Airport, the aircraft was dedicated to the memory of Mike Carlton, the founder of the original Hunter One collection which formed the roots for Jet Heritage and the BAM. With the museum's enforced departure from the airport, XJ690 was left on display, untouched, and is now starting to look rather green.
