The Hunter & the Sea Vixen
The Hunter & the Sea Vixen are former Royal Navy jets (the Hunter also spent time with the RAF), both now privately owned. This much should be pretty obvious in the case of the Hunter, as unlike the Vixen it no longer flies under Navy livery. It’s also been renamed Miss Demeanour.
You know, I think having this fly over a battlefield might confuse the hell out of the enemy.
It looks just as eye-catching from the bottom too.
Then the Sea Vixen came out to play.
This Sea Vixen is the last airworthy example in the world. And what an impressive example – the pilot had this thing doing full loops.
That’s the jet fighters for now – we’ll come back to that form of flight in a while, but on the next page we’re returning to prop-powered antics, this time from a national champion.
