Hunter F.6A XG226 at RAF Manston History Museum, 21st October 2017; Richard E Flagg

XG226 making its first flight on 28th September 1956 and retired to Catterick Fire School in February 1983 as 8800M. It then moved to Long Marston before being delivered to the RAF Manston History Museum in June 2005 for display as the photo above shows. The cockpit section seems to be in great condition painted in a overall blue colour scheme with a lightning bolt running down the side to the nose.
