Sea Hawk Mk.101 IN246 at rest on the INS Vikrant, December 2001; Sandeep Unnithan/Warbirds of India

This is IN246, pictured on deck onboard the INS Vikrant. Retired in recent years, the Vikrant had been slowly rusting away but a campaign to save her and turn her into a floating museum has been successful and she was recently opened as a tourist attraction with a restored IN246 taking pride of place on the flight deck.
