Final push for Sywell Hunter


Work has been ongoing at the Sywell Aviation Museum at Sywell Aerodrome, Northamptonshire, throughout 2018 to finish the six-year restoration of its unique Hawker Hunter F2, WN904. The 1954-vintage jet is the only complete F2 variant of the type left in the world.

Museum staff have applied a fresh coat of paint to the aircraft’s upper surfaces, and it only remains now to finish the markings in time for an unveiling during the museum’s annual grand opening on 20 April 2019. With that in mind the museum would be grateful for any donations of military/aviation books, model kits or diecast models to help raise sufficient funds to complete the restoration by April. If you can help, please contact the museum at
