Hunter T.7 N-315 at Netherley, 7th September 2021; Lucas Walpole

N-315 was seen at Long Marston in a rather poor state back in the 1990s, but thankfully moved on to new owners. She was transported to the premises of Alba Power, who service Avon and Olympus gas turbines. Once on-site, they began the restoration which was finished off with a smart repaint into her original Dutch colours. The canopy was also painted black, possible to hide the mess underneath.

Today, the paint is starting to show its age, and the nose leg could do with a charge and a gag around it to prevent it from collapsing in the future.
