 Hawker Hunter F.58 (J-4091) at Bruntingthorpe - Click for Full Image

Hawker Hunter F.58 (J-4091) at Bruntingthorpe is an ex-Swiss Air Force Hunter. Subject to fast-taxi runs and operated by Phoenix Aviation this aircraft is in great condition and is a credit to the engineers who work on her. During my visit to Bruntingthorpe, I was very kindly invited to have a closer look at the aircraft and had the opportunity to sit in the cockpit. A great moment for myself, to sit in an effectively airworthy Hunter was fantastic - a big thank-you to Simon Chapman at Bruntingthorpe for giving me the opportuunity.
