Sea Hawk FGA.6 WV856 at Fleet Air Arm Museum, 3rd November 2021; Jake Wallace

This is the Fleet Air Arm Museum's example, another FGA.6 - WV856, which served with 806 and 781 NAS before transfer to the Royal Aircraft Establishment and later retired to the Museum.

WV856 can be found in the Carrier exhibition with wings folded like the photo above shows. Like most of the museum's airframes, she's in great condition with the cockpit pretty complete, however, she is not fitted with an engine.
