HISTORY

The J-4203/HB-RVW aircraft, active within Espace Passion, flew 1,433 hours.

This aircraft is part of Hunter’s second series of acquisitions in Switzerland. After flying in the Royal Air Force as a single-seater, it was purchased in 1972 and transformed in Emmen into a two-seater aircraft. It could perform the same missions as the single-seater, but only had two guns. He slept in a cave at the Raron airfield from 1995 to 2001. Offered to the Foundation by the Air Force, it was dismantled and transported to Payerne by road in November 2001.
In the spring of 2004, it received its civil registration as a historic aircraft, HB-RVW. Since then, he has made passenger flights and participated in AIR 04 and AIR 14 air shows.

After its last flight on October 3, 2014 it was placed in the aircraft exhibition of the Clin d’Ailes Museum.
