Work has been ongoing throughout 2018 to finish the six-year restoration of Hawker Hunter F.2 WN904 at the Sywell Aviation Museum in Northamptonshire. The 1954-constructed jet is the only complete F.2 variant left in the world.

Museum staff have applied a fresh coat of paint to her upper surfaces and it remains now to complete her markings in time for her unveiling at the museum’s grand opening on the 20th April 2019. With that in mind the museum would be grateful for any donations of military/aviation books, model kits or diecast models to help raise sufficient funds to complete her restoration by April. If you’re able to help please contact the museum at sywellaviationmuseum@gmail.com or call 0796 8061708
