Hunter GA.11 XE707 at Bentwaters, 6th November 2021; Damien Burke

Delivered to the RAF in 1955 as an F.4, being converted to a GA.11 in 1962 and retiring in 1994.

XE707 received the serial G-BVYH and was moved to Exeter in 1995. She was later assigned the serial N707XE and was exported to the USA where she returned to the skies for several years. By 2006, the aircraft had returned to the UK and was stored in Derbyshire for a little while, before being sold to Bentwaters in 2010 for display. XE707 has received some TLC since her arrival including a repaint in 2014, and another during 2020/2021. In early 2018, her civil registration N707XE was cancelled.
