Hunter F.58 J-4091 at Bruntingthorpe, 23rd May 2009; Francis Wallace

Ex-Swiss Air Force Hunter J-4091, made a ferry flight into Bruntingthorpe in 1995 after being brought by Phoneix Aviation. J-4091 was kept in taxiable condition, and regularly performed fast taxi runs at the Cold War Jets' open days. When Phoneix Aviation closed, the airframe moved hands and became a part of the British Aviation Heritage Collection (more commonly known as the Cold War Jets collection) which was also on-site at Bruntingthorpe.

In 2010, J-4091 was sold to Hunter Aviation International, based in Newark, Delaware, USA where she was moved to in late 2010 with plans to bring her back to the UK in the near future. However, this didn't go to plan, instead, she stayed out in the USA until 2013 where she was granted a certificate of airworthiness and gained the serial N335AX!

N335AX is still a flyer to this day and can be seen in grey camouflage colours like a few other Hunter airframes with Hunter Aviation International.
