Hawker Hunter Mk. 58

A picture of the Hawker Hunter Mk. 58

Development of the Hunter began with the RAF’s search for a replacement for the Meteor in 1947 and the first prototype was ready in mid-1951.  The initial versions of the Hunter suffered from numerous problems with their aerodynamics, range and weapons.  However, development continued and most of the problems were fixed in the Mark 4 and Mark 6 versions of the aircraft.  Hunters served as the primary fighter for the Royal Air Force well into the 1960s while two-seat trainers and ground attack variants were used until the 1970s.  The Hunter was also an extremely popular export fighter eventually serving with twenty-one air forces outside of England.  The Hunter Mk. 58 is the export version of the Mk. 6 fighter built for Switzerland.  The Swiss Air Force used the Hunter from 1958 to 1994.
