Hunter T.7 G-BNCX at Dunsfold Aerodrome, 26th June 2021; Nigel Roling

On display at Dunsfold is XL621. First flown on 9th January 1959, she served with the Gutersloh and Jever Station Flights, 4 FTS and the ETPS.

On disposal she was bought by Lovaux at Hurn and was being worked on to return her to the air hence why it wears the registration G-BNCX. Sadly the plan fell through, the company was bought out and John Hallett bought her and put her on display at Brooklands; with John's passing she has since moved to Dunsfold Aerodrome and can now be seen to the right when entering the Aerodrome.

Today, it looks in fairly poor state with it sat out in the open fighting the elements. Paint has faded and the canopy plus side screens appear to have turned cloudy.
