Hawk XX341 was manufactured as a Hawk T1 by BAe at Dunsfold in May 1981 and has served at MoD Boscombe Down since as an Advanced Stability Training & Research Aircraft (ASTRA) for the Empire Test Pilots' School. From January 1984 until June 1988 the aircraft underwent a modification programme at Cranfeild to embody a Variable Stability System (VSS). The system was designed and developed by the Flight Systems and Measurements Laboratories, Cranfield Institute of Techmology (CIT) under contract to MoD (PE)D Flying. The front cockpit is fitted with force feedback central and side-stick controllers and HUD intergral Up Front Controller. Except for the parking Brake, all normal front seat controls have been maved to the rear cockpit. XX341 has full parameter onboard recording and telemetry. The aircraft is being continuously upgraded and is currently being fitted with new colour MFDs, a Hawk 100 specification HUD, Ring Laser Gyro unit, GPS, and a new Computer Symbol Generator.

The BAe Systems Hawk is a British single engine, advanced jet trainer originally developed by Hawker Siddley. First flown in 1974, the Hawk entered service in 1976. It is used by the Royal Air Force and other nations as either a trainer or a low-cost combat aircraft. The Hawk is still in production, with over 900 sold to 18 customers around the world. The Hawk is also flown by the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Display Team, The Red Arrows.
