  1. No longer relevant to the new 5th generation glass cockpit aircraft that are entering or are in service, Hawk TI is all analogue gauges in the cockpit, only 100Sqn, Red Arrows &736NAS fly T1 now.
  2. Serial XX155 does not exist on any UK airframe.
  3. XX156 the next Hawk built is now the Gate guardian at RAF Valley.
  4. Current flying hour life is 12,000 now, on y unit we have one a./c in excess of 10380 flying hours, the in service Hawk T1/1A fleet had a fuselage [centre & rear] replacement a few years ago, the Mainplane was replaced back in late 80's/early 90's, tailplanes were replaced & fin mounts reworked too in early to mid 2000's, current out of service is looking at 2027 - 2030.
  5. No it isn't we have BAe Hawks. not getting anything else.
  6. Yes, correct later smaller head boxes, as per every other T1/1A Hawk in UK service
  7. we [Fradu now 736NAS, had 7 in the 100years of naval aviation scheme, at this time 4 still survuve but with the titles & 100 on fin/rudder. the actual aircraft are standard RAF Hawk T1A's no pylons & no gunpod fitted, the actual 7 A/C were XX157,XX159,XX205,XX261,XX281,XX301,XX337. of these only the last 4 retain the painted fin/rudders.
  8. good to see this back in progress, Brian Hoskins has been the manager of FRADU in the past where I work, now known as 736NAS, glad the EUMS probe photo's were useful.
  9. well pleased to see it's going home to Glos area, looked very shabby when I went to Leeming last July.
  10. left = port = red right = starboard = green rear = white [end of blister on jet pipe fairing - either in the centre or if a T1a on the right hand side]
  11. found this on the defence internet site at work this morning, it's a huge machine makes a C-17 look small. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/first-uk-a400m-atlas-delivered-to-the-raf
  12. you can slam open the throttle on any UK hawk, I do it on full engine ground runs, doesn't matter if it's a EUMS a/c or not. not aware of any mods for the throttle box.
  13. probably done to demonstrate the Reds would be a full on operational local air defence squadron if the need ever arised, all the TWU T1A aircraft would be dispersed to airfields with no local fighter cover, such as the large aircraft & helicopter bases.
