Hawker-Hunter T7 Military Trainer Aircraft

The single seat Hawker Hunter jet fighter first flew in July 1951 and entered RAF service three years later, it soon became apparent that a two seat advanced training version with weapons capability would be useful and so a new side-by-side forward fuselage was designed and mated to a Hawker Hunter Mk4 fighter airframe, the resultant aircraft being designated the Hawker Hunter T7.

The Hawker Hunter T7 entered RAF service in 1958 and one aircraft was assigned to each of the RAF's Hawker Hunter fighter squadrons, the remaining aircraft produced were allocated to 229 OCU (Operational Conversion Unit), the Hawker Hunter T7 was destined to remain in service until 2002 when the last remaining RAF aircraft was retired from service with the the Empire Test Pilots School. It is of note that the Hawker Hunter T.68 Trainer built for and operated by the Swiss Air Force was almost identical to the T7.
