De Hawker Jager is a British jet-powered fighter aircraft that was developed by Hawker Aircraft in the 1950s. It was the first British aircraft to exceed Mach 1 in level flight and served with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and many other air forces around the world. The Hunter was designed as an interceptor and fighter-bomber, but also proved to be versatile and adaptable to various roles, such as reconnaissance, ground attack, trainer and aerobatic display. The Hunter had a sleek and elegant appearance, with a swept-wing design and a single Rolls-Royce Avon turbojet engine.
It had excellent handling characteristics and performance, earning it the nickname “Queen of the Skies” among its pilots. The Hunter was widely exported and saw combat action in several conflicts, including the Suez Crisis, the Six-Day War, the Indo-Pakistani Wars and the Rhodesian Bush War. The Hunter remained in service until the 1990s, when it was retired from active duty. However, some Hunters are still flown today by civilian operators for heritage and display purposes.
