1:72 Scale. Length: 6.75". Wingspan: 5.5"
It is difficult to imagine seeing a more famous aircraft in British skies than the one flown by the leader of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows. During his final year leading the team, Squadron Leader Martin Pert flew British Aerospace Hawk T.1A XX322 for what he hoped would be another successful year for the world’s premier aerobatic display team however, as we all now know, 2020 turned out to be a very different year for the team. Despite this, his time with the Red Arrows will be remembered as being an extremely successful period, leading the team throughout the centenary year of the Royal Air Force in 2018 and during their spectacular tour of North America in 2019, the team’s largest ever visit to Canada and the United States.Detailed pilot figure

During both of these significant events Sqn Ldr Pert’s BAe Hawk T.1A XX322 carried the names of over 6000 people on its tail, the culmination of the RAF Museum’s successful ‘Names on a Plane’ campaign, which ran throughout 2017.
The famous red BAe Hawk T.1 trainers used by the team represent one of the most successful British aircraft of the post war years and have been flown by the Red Arrows for an impressive 38 seasons, taking over from the Folland Gnat in 1979, with their first Hawk displays performed the following year.
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.
