PRESS RELEASE DHHF :
New Hawker Hunter twoseater for Dutch Hawker Hunter Foundation<

Fliegermuseum Altenrhein at Altenrhein, Switzerland and Dutch Hawker Hunter Foundation (DHHF) at Leeuwarden have concluded an agreement regarding the sale
of Hawker Hunter Mk68 registered as HB-RVP (ex Swiss Airforce J-4205) to DHHF. This aircraft will at DHHF replace its Hunter T.8C G-BWGL/N-321 which, due to
unsurmountable technical issues, no longer can be operated.

Hunter HB-RVP will be transferred to the British civil register, as is the case with DHHF’s Hunter F.6A . The aircraft will, like its predecessor, wear the authentic
colour scheme of the twoseater Hawker Hunters operated by the Royal Netherlands Air Force, with the spurious military registration N-322.
Due to existing corona-restrictions, delivery of HB-RVP to DHHF will take considerable more time than envisaged.

We expect the aircraft to arrive at Leeuwarden Airbase in the course of the second quarter of this year. It is foreseen to have this year all still flying Hunters
in Europe together celebrating the Hawker Hunter’s 70th birthday.

2017 / 2018

Press releas DHHF :
Hunters of the Dutch Hawker Hunter Foundation will fly again!

Now that the Civil Aviation Authority has lifted the flight ban for British registered Hawker Hunter jet fighters, set after the crash with an English Hunter T7
(G-BXFI) at the Shoreham Airshow in August 2015, as of today, July 6, 2017, DHHF will again fly with her both Hunters G-KAXF/N-294 F.6A and the
G-BWGL/N-321 T.8C. Initially, the accent will be placed on the aircraft in optimal condition of the classic fighter jets. Therefore, they will depart from Leeuwarden
this summer from their home base at St Athan, Wales, UK, for a number of inspections and adjustments. In the autumn, the aircraft will return to Leeuwarden Airport,
from which they will regularly make further test and training flights.

Everything is aimed at both devices being fully deployed in 2018 for participation in domestic and international airshows.
