  Hunter 50th Anniversary Air Day - Kemble, Gloucestershire 22nd July 2001
 

Review - The celebration of 50 years of the Hawker Hunter at Kemble in 2001 will be remembered the most for the formation of 15 Hunters that closed the show in fine style in a sky-filling diamond formation.  Other highlights included GA.11 G-BZPB in the colour scheme of the prototype Hunter WB188 and the visit from Switzerland of the colourful F.58 HB-RVS / J-4015 'Papyrus' making its first UK airshow appearance alongside T.68 HB-RVP / J4205.
