Midair Squadron’s Hunter XL577 will make its debut display at Abingdon Air and Country Show alongside Canberra PR9 XH134 in May.
The Hunter XL577 has been confirmed to display alongside Canberra PR9 XH134, in the first scheduled public display of the season for the squadron.
Following an extensive restoration programme, using highly skilled engineers from C2 Aviation, this display will mark XL577’s return to the public circuit. It was last seen in 2009.
Midair Squadron owner Mike Davis said: “This announcement is extremely exciting for all who have enjoyed following the return to flight schedule of all three Midair Squadron aircraft.
"XL577 will be a welcome addition to the display circuit, with all three aircraft exemplifying the very finest of British engineering.”
The final member of the Midair Squadron trio - Hunter T7 XL600 - is already prepared in the silver squadron livery and is expected to be fully restored soon.
Other confirmed flying display acts at Abingdon Air & Country Show on May 4 include the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire, Breitling Wingwalkers and Catalina.
