About the Royal Air Force – Hawker Hunter T7 (above): The Hawker Hunter was one of the World’s First Supersonic Fighters and had a very long and successful career in the RAF from the late 1950s until they were retired in 1994. The Hawker Hunter once held the World Speed Record at 727 mph in 1953 with Neville Duke at the Controls. There were more than 1900 built and served with many (19) Air Forces around the World. The Swiss Air Force operated more than 160 Aircraft, both new and second-hand. The Hunter was upgraded several times from it’s Interceptor Fighter role to finally being used for as a Ground Attack Aircraft, which it was very successful at and was used by militia squadrons in the last decades of its service life. The retired aircraft had a ready market as a Warbird and for use in target facilities operations.
The Hawker Hunter is still being used by a number of air forces today including the US and Europe as a simulated threat attack aircraft to training Air Defense systems! The Hawker Hunter is a beautiful aircraft with clean lines and is well known for its wonderful flying characteristics. There are ONLY two places in the world that you can fly in this wonderful aircraft and one is here in Ontario, Canada.
