Without doubt one of the most historic British jet aircraft of the post war era, British Aerospace Hawk T.1 XX154 is the first prototype airframe of an aircraft type which would go on to be hugely important to the British military, whilst at the same time becoming a stunning export success for the British aviation industry. Making her first flight from Dunsfold airfield on 21st August 1974, XX154 would spend her entire service life as a test and development aircraft, helping to ensure that this magnificent training aeroplane reached its full potential - with over 1000 aircraft built to date, she certainly excelled in this task. Spending time with such famous units as the Royal Aircraft Establishment and the Aeroplane & Armament Experimental Establishment, XX154 would spend the final 20 years of her service life with the Empire Test Pilots" School at Boscombe Down and after undergoing her last major service, she was given this smart black colour scheme, in recognition of her service. Also wearing a representation of the ETPS crest on either side of her tail, a gold coloured eagle, XX154 would end her flying days as one of Britain"s most attractive military aircraft. When this very special aeroplane made her final flight in December 2018, she had clocked up an impressive 6000 flying hours, the limit imposed for original Hawk airframes. This hard working aircraft was making a valuable contribution to the British Military

BAe Hawk T.Mk 1

Designed to meet an RAF requirement for a fast trainer to replace the Folland Gnat, the BaE Hawk first flew on August 21, 1974. This tandem two-seat aircraft has a distinctive appearance, with the front seat positioned below the rear seat so that the instructor has a clear view of the student's cockpit. The Hawk is subsonic in level flight but can achieve Mach 1.15 in a dive, giving trainees the experience of supersonic flight. Hawks are expensive to produce but durable and maneuverable enough to be used for combat. The Hawk is in use in 18 different nations, and is still in production today.

Corgi's 1:72 scale Hawks recognize a "tradition of excellence" from Hawker Siddeley Aircraft (now BAE Systems); a British aircraft manufacturer responsible for some of the most famous products in British aviation history. Corgi has done a excellent job in reproducing this compact tandem seat aircraft, making it a fine addition to the modern jet collector. Corgi has even replicated the distinctive cordite charge embedded in the canopy used to shatter the canopy during the ejection sequence. The landing gear with rotating wheels and rubber tires is simple and easy to install for ground display. A custom display stand is also included that cradles the model for in-flight display.
