swisshunters.info :: Celebrating the Hawker Hunter Mks58, 58A & TMk68
15th August 2009
Pictures from Bruce Perkins (via Ron Wheeldon) of J-4202/ZU-HUN, 15th August 2009.
4202 was taking part in the "Ultimate Challenge Air Race" which was an non-handicap "open to all comers"
race from Rustenberg (and back to Rustenberg) organised by the South African power flying association.
The Hunter won (unsurprisingly) but she actually set a new SA record (no 042) for a 500km closed course at an average 877km/h (545mph).
