HAWKER HUNTER F.6
Hawker’s versatile Hunter must rank as one of the most iconic aircraft designs in aviation history. If greatness in a combat aircraft equates with outstanding service longevity and flexibility, then it’s truly great and one of the classic aircraft of all time. It’s aesthetically beautiful and a thoroughbred in every sense of the word. This was hardly surprising given the aircraft was designed by Sir Sydney Camm, whose other masterpieces for Hawker included the venerable Hurricane, Sea Fury and Harrier.
