Work on a two seat variant of the Hawker Hunter began in 1954, when a contract was issued for the manufacture of two prototypes. Designed by a team led by Sydney Camm, the first of these aircraft flew on July 8, 1955 with Neville Duke at the controls. Hawker Hunter trainers enjoyed a long career in RAF service and one of its key roles was training crews for the Buccaneer strike aircraft. To assist with training, several Hunter T7 cockpits were fitted with the same instruments and controls as those used in the Buccaneer. #XL573 was delivered to the Day Fighter Leaders School at West Raynham in July 1958. After duty with 229 OCU and 4 FTS, in February 1980 it joined 237 OCU at Honington where, following the grounding of the Buccaneer fleet, its primary role was to keep Buccaneer flight crews current. No. XL573 served the RAF for almost 33 years before ending its military days at Lossiemouth in 1991.
