Hawker Hunter F.6A XK149 taken over Barnstable in 1975. XK149 first flew in May 1957 and is now believed to be owned by AeroGroup in the USA.

The pilot of this Hunter contacted us some time ago with details of the shot but thanks to a computer failure and lack of backup (user failure!) we have lost those details. If you are that pilot then please contact us again.
