Sea Hawk FB.5 WM961 at Caernarfon, 19th August 2001; Damien Burke

WM961 is in pretty good nick, but the cockpit is pretty gutted. She served with 811 and 802 NAS and then moved on to FRADU's forerunner - FRU, before being retired and used as an instructional airframe at the School of Aircraft Handling at RNAS Culdrose. One of the handful of remaining Mk.5s, she's happily displayed undercover at Caernarfon, in Suez markings. The cockpit is apparently now being worked on to try and restore it to its former glory.
