Miss Demeanour, Hunter Aircraft, St Athan Yesterday

Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Have found the answer - they are indeed enlarged:

From Thunder & Lightnings' Hawker Hunter history site:
The F.58 was essentially an FGA.9, but with Sidewinders and enlarged Sabrinas holding chaff and flare dispensers.

Just a quick question for those in the know.

Why the 899 NAS Mailed Fist on the tail? Was that this aircraft's last serving squadron?
