The Lightning and the Buccaneer might have a bigger fan base. There's no doubt that the Hunter did a lot of stuff.

Yup. Willy waving by a bunch of neocons. Talk about how this affects US military aviation, or can it as irrelevant.

SH - CH-47. Likewise
Trainer - Chipmunk. ...

It was definitely a two-seater and there were no Finnish markings. Did Finland send any jets back to the RAF?

I was at St Athan in 1988 and I recall a Gnat in grey/green camouflage parked (stored?) outside one of the hangars. What was that all about?
