hunter

Wimborne MAC Scale Day 2016. Re-maiden flight of John Ireland's Hawker Hunter. Previously it had an issue with landing gear collapse but now sorted. It flew magnificently and is quite fast with ample power. Fuel load is 4 litres which gives good flight times. Flaps definitely needed and used as you will see in the movie.

Port main gear got stuck when retracting, so making some tight turns to see if the "G" would help it up but came down and locked on landing, so that was good.

Piloted initially by the club's test pilot Jon Tappin and then by John himself. Smiles all around.
