I saw the silver Hunter & Canberra flying at Goodwood festival of speed years ago. Shame they're no longer flying :@

Is it realistic to hope one of the Canberras will fly again? Last saw what I assume was that Hunter flying four or five years ago.

I thought that one of the PR.9's was bound for India?

Last I heard was that both are still for sale.
I believe that 134 was sold on an auction site for a steal but the buyer couldn't afford to remove it from Kemble.

I wouldn't hold your breathe, unfortunately. Hunter XL577/G-XMHD departed for Jordan in 2016, that's the last we saw of the fleet.

As above, India were interested in one of the Canberra but, I believe nothing else came of the deal.
