Preserved at a roundabout near Chièvres airbase, wearing code "7J-B" of the personal aircraft of 7 Smaldeel's commanding officer at the time, Capt. Corbeel. This aircraft, which never actually carried this code during its operational life, was taken on charge in April 1958. It was struck off charge only four years later, in June 1962. The aircraft was later displayed at Brustem airbase, and went into storage when that base closed in 1996. The Hunter was restored to display condition in 2006 and shortly thereafter placed on display as seen here.
