Squadron Leader Neville Duke's world record breaking Hunter F.3 with its unique pointed nose and distinctive overall red scheme. He reached 727.6 mph in the aircraft in 1953. It was brought by road to the 1976 IAT and exhibited in a place of honour in front of a line of operational RAF Hunters.
Built by Hawkers at Kingston in August 1957. Based at RAF Wittering, it wears 45 Squadrons "Winged Camel" insignia. The squadron flew Sopwith Camels in 1917/19 and served in the Middle East for many years between 1921 and 1942.
Hot machine, cool dudes. Seen here in the smart colours of VF-142 but last served VF-14 before retirement in 1992. After taking a long vacation in the sun at DM, this fabulous looking aircraft was scrapped in 2008
