Hunter FGA.9 XG154 at Hendon, 16th November 2013; Damien Burke

One of only two FGA.9s preserved and on display in the UK is at the RAF Museum at Hendon, and in superb condition of course. XG154 was built as an F.6 and served with 66(F) Squadron before being returned to Hawkers and converted to an FGA.9 in 1960. She went on to serve with 8(F) and 43(F) Squadrons, spent some time with the Fleet Air Arm at Brawdy, then ended her days back with the RAF in 1 TWU. On retirement she was earmarked for preservation with the RAF Museum. The markings are combined 8/43 Squadron ones, from the time the two squadrons shared aircraft in the Far East. She's the first aircraft you see on entering the museum's main display hall.
