Hunter F.6A XG152 at Gatow, 30th December 2016; Damien Burke

XG152 finished an 18-month restoration in summer 2000 and thanks to the hard work of a dedicated band of volunteers at the Luftwaffenmuseum, she still looks to be in pretty good condition some 14 years later, with surprisingly little paint fade. The first problem the museum had was lack of appropriate tools - imperial measurements being used on the Hunter, but metric being the standard in Germany. However, appropriate tools were bought with donations and it certainly looks like they did the job. Sadly at the moment she is in a closed-off part of the airfield so can only be photographed from quite some distance away.
