Sea Hawk FB.3 WM913 at the Newark Air Museum, 6th February 2006; Damien Burke

Parked next to a Sea Venom, the Newark Air Museum's Sea Hawk, WM913, which is an Armstrong Whitworth-built example and had a varied service life before being retired to the School of Aircraft Handling at RNAS Culdrose. Moving on from there to become the gate guard at RNAS Sealand, with the handing over of that base to the RAF, WM913 was loaned to the Sea Cadets and then finally loaned to the Newark Air Museum. WM913 looks to be in excellent condition, bar what appears to be a bullet hole in one of the windscreen quarter panels!
