Hawker Hunter - Iraq

Hunter F.Mk.6
Serial: 401
Unit: RIrAF

Circa 1957. The first version of the Hawker Hunter purchased by Iraq was F.Mk.6, which entered service with the No. 1 Sqn, at the time based at Habbaniyah/Tahmouz AB. The pilots and technicians for the unit were trained by No. 229 OCU, at Chivenor and were swift to learn how to operate the aircraft properly. Initially, the tempo of RIrAF Hunter-operations was high, with the units going through a very rigorous training programme. Sadly, most of the officers and pilots from Habbaniyah were arrested and imprisoned either after the coup in 1958, or after another coup, in 1960. Only few remained in Iraq after 1962, and even less returned to serve.
