Nice to see the hawks still flying. I was part of the team that took 24 hawks out of storage at Shawbury, took them to Boscombe Down, did a major servicing on them and retuned them to 100 Squadron and the Royal Navy in 2017.I read somewhere recently that they are due to retire then in the next two years.
