Hawker Hunter - Iraq

Hunter FR.Mk.10 (ex F.Mk.6)
Serial: 664 (ex N259)
Unit: IrAF

Several Hunter F.Mk.59As and F.Mk.59Bs were delivered modified to the FR.Mk.10 standard. During the 1960s some of these, including the '664' shown here (former N259 while still a F.Mk.6 with the Netherlands Air Force), were easily recognizible having had their noses and fins painted in red. On 13 October 1973 British mercenary Robert Conner was shot down while returning with one of the FR.Mk.10s from a reconnaissance mission over the Golan - by Syrian SA-3s. The loss caused a break in cooperation between the IrAF and the SyAAF at the time.
