Sea Hawk F.2 WF259 at National Museum of Flight, 24th June 2022; Adam Poultney

This is WF259, another F.2, this time at the opposite end of the country, at the National Museum of Flight at East Fortune in Scotland. WF259 served with 736 NAS, Lossiemouth Station Flight, and as an instructional airframe before coming to rest at the museum.

Part of a lineup of naval aircraft in the Jet Age hangar, she, like many of the museum's aircraft, is in superb condition. As you can see, the wings are folded to save space, something many museums do with their Sea Hawks and other aircraft with folding wings.
Having been in a hangar the majority of its life, the airframe is in great condition as the photo above shows.
