Hawker Sea Hawk - Survivors

The Sea Hawk has survived in impressive numbers, and the aircraft's small size means that nose sections aren't as common as with other types. It's much cheaper to buy and easier to transport than larger airframes, which no doubt explains the difference. Apparently the Indian Navy may have more Sea Hawks in storage - if you know more about the Indian Sea Hawks or have pictures of the surviving examples, please let me know. Click on the serial of a survivor entry for further information. Please comment on any individual survivor entry you feel requires an update!
