Following its recent appeal for books, magazines and model kits, Sywell Aviation Museum has raised sufficient funds to begin refurbishing Hawker Hunter F.2 WN904.

It has already reinstalled the ejection seat, and carried out remedial work on external surfaces in preparation for a new coat of paint. The Hunter is to be returned to the colours and Q-for-Queenie codes it wore with 257 Squadron in 1954. The museum continues to welcome donation of the above items to help it complete the project.
