Qatar Emiri Air Force

Hawker Hunter Fighter Bomber

The Hawker Hunter is widely regarded as the most graceful jet design ever to fly. Originally flying at the about the same time as the F-86 and MiG-15, the Hawker Hunter was hugely popular aircraft that not only outlasted them, but has also stayed in service longer than many later aircraft. The Hunter was one of Britain's most successful exports, having been operated by 20 countries; Abu Dhabi, Belgium, Chile, Denmark, Great Britain (last Hunter fight in 1999), Iraq, India (last Hunter fight in 2000), Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Netherlands, Oman, Peru, Qatar, Rhodesia/Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Somalia, Sweden, and Switzerland (last Hunter fight in 1995). A total of 1,927 Hunters were produced. The Hunter was armed with 4 30 mm ADEN cannon and up to 7,400 lb of external stores and had a maximum speed of Mach 0.94 (715 mph). This model shows a Hunter of the Qatar Emiri Air Force in the late 1950s.
