Corgi Aviation Archive Series Diecast Model
BAe Hawk T.1 – XX154, Empire Test Pilots’ School (ETPS), Wiltshire, England, August 2019 - Aircraft now with the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection at Old Sarum
1:72 Scale. Length: 6.75". Wingspan: 5.5"
Without a doubt one of the most historic British jet aircraft of the post war era, British Aerospace Hawk T1 XX154 is the first prototype airframe of an aircraft type which would go on to be hugely important to the British military, while at the same time becoming a stunning export success for the British aviation industry. Making her first flight from Dunsfold airfield in August 1974, XX154 would spend her entire service life as a test and development aircraft, helping to ensure that this magnificent training airplane reached its full potential – with over 1000 aircraft built to date, she certainly excelled in this task. Spending time with such units as the Royal Aircraft Establishment and the Airplane & Armament Experimental Establishment, Hawk XX154 would spend the final 20 years of her service life with the Empire Test Pilots’ School at Boscombe Down and after her last major service, was given this smart black color scheme, in recognition of her service. Also wearing a representation of the ETPS crest on either side of her tail, gold colored eagle, XX154 would end her flying days as one of Britain’s most attractive military aircraft. When this special airplane made her final flight in December 2018, she had clocked up an impressive 6000 flying hours, the limit imposed for original Hawk airframes. This hard working aircraft was making a valuable contribution to the British Military.Detailed pilot figure
