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

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.

Hunter F.Mk.59
Unit: 1st Sqn, IrAF
Serial: 570 (c/n.8750)

Iraqi Hunter-fleet took part in the war against Israel, in 1973, as well. This time the No.1 Sqn was deployed to Egypt, while No.702 OCU was deployed to Syria. Both units suffered considerable losses: the No.1 Sqn should have lost all of its aircraft by the second week of the fighting.

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

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.
