Painted as the unlucky Hawker Hunter T.Mk.7 prototype (Hawker P.1101) XJ615, this ex-XF357, a former FRADU/Royal Navy Hunter T.Mk.8C was part of the Breitling Days at Buochs. The original XJ615 crashed 1964 when the engine flamed out due to mismanagement of the fuel booster pump switches following fuel transfer failure. The aircraft struck trees on high ground in lifting fog 1¾ miles SE of Haslemere, Surrey killing the French pilot.
