Описание: In July 1984 a team from British Aerospace at Kingston embarked upon an air-to-air photographic mission covering a flight of nine aircraft based at RAF Brawdy in south-west Wales. Events such as this, whilst not exactly frequent, are not unusual, especially when the maiden flight of a prototype is taking place. This trip, however, was rather different: its purpose was to record a farewell flight - the last official RAF sortie to be undertaken by one of Kingston's most eminent and durable products, the single-seat Hawker Hunter. The aircraft in question, attached to No 1 Tactical Weapons Unit, were being flown to RAF St Athan to be placed in medium-term storage, thus ending an association that had spanned almost thirty years - at least, unless some policy decision requires their use in the future.
