Hunter F.58 J-4006 at Hamilton; Ian Russell

Lovingly looked after at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is J-4006, complete with replica underwing rockets - the only preserved ex-Swiss example I've seen actually carrying them. J-4006 was originally built (in 1955) as an F.6 for the RAF but never entered squadron service and was sold on to the Swiss Air Force and delivered to them, converted to F.58 standard, in 1958. J-4006 has a web site of her own courtesy of one of her maintainers, Ian Russell; she also has a page on the CWH web site here.
