Hunter F.6A XF418 at Hermeskeil, 20th October 2016; Richard E Flagg

Built by Armstrong Whitworth at Baginton, XF418 served with the DFLS, 229 OCU and the TWU and retired to RAF Laarbruch for BDRT duties in 1984. 92 Squadron, then at RAF Wildenrath, soon got hold of the aircraft and moved it to their base for display in Blue Diamonds colours. On the closure of Wildenrath the aircraft was bought by the museum at Hermeskeil and has been on display there ever since. Apart from the clouded canopy, the airframe seems to be in relatively good condition.
