K2986 was part of a batch of Hawker Harts delivered to 600 squadron in January 1935, pending the arrival of the Hawker Demons. They were distinguished by the squadron's colourful red and white markings worn on the upper wing and fuselage sides. By 1937 the conversion to Demons was complete and K2986 was shipped as SR-4 to the Southern Rhodesian Air Force for use in the advanced training and army-co-operation role.
Entering service with the RAF in 1930, the Hawker Hart was possibly the most versatile aircraft of the 'Inter war' period. Designed by Sydney Camm as a two-seat daylight bomber, it spawned several variants including a fighter, seaplane, reconnaissance aircraft, and trainer. The Hart day bomber had a single 525 hp (390 kW) Rolls-Royce Kestrel IB V12 engine; a maximum speed of 185 mph (298 km/h) and a range of 430 miles (692 km).
