This year, HHA will be sending one of their ex-Swiss Air Force Hunter Mk.58s to appear on static display at RIAT 2024 to represent the type’s contribution to NATO during the Cold War as part of the celebration of the organisations 75th anniversary. It is hoped that the aircraft present will be ZZ191/G-HHAD painted in its distinctive ‘dazzle’ scheme.

The example attending RIAT 2024 will be a British built Mark 3, first flown in 1967 and has received several useful modifications including electronic ignition and wing tip tanks for extended range. G-NIPR has been owned by the present owner for nearly 25 years and is regularly flown on local aerobatic flights, as well as longer touring trips. In order to attend RIAT 2024, the aircraft will be making an 800-mile round trip from its base in the Highlands of Scotland! The aircraft was planned to appear at RIAT 2023 but experienced engine trouble en-route.
