What a nice but also sad surprise at the backyard of the museum! The remains of ex RAF XA107 lie scattered around the badly deteriorated front fuselage section (nicely visible is the mainly wooden structure), mixed with the wings of J-301. This aircraft was part of the second batch bought in 1972 as trainers for the then new Hawker Hunters, and remained in active service until 1980 [Canon 40D + EF-S 10-22 mm f3.5-4.5 USM].
