Hunter F.6A XE627 at IWM Duxford, 19th May 2006; Damien Burke

The IWM's Hunter is F.6A XE627, first flown on 13th June 1956 and delivered to 45MU the next month. She served with 65(F), 92(F) and 54(F) Squadrons plus 229 OCU, then 1(F) Squadron and finally 1 TWU before retirement in the early 1980s. Repainted in the mid-1990s and hangared almost all the time, she's absolutely immaculate. While work was ongoing on the new AirSpace hangar extension, XE627 was moving around a fair bit, and spent some time outside, when the picture above was taken. She's now inside the AirSpace hangar.
