North American Tour, August - October 2019 It is difficult to imagine seeing a more famous aircraft in British skies than the one flown by the leader of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows. During his final year leading the team, Squadron Leader Martin Pert flew British Aerospace Hawk T.1A XX322 for what he hoped would have been another successful year for the world"s premier aerobatic display team, however, as we all now know, 2020 turned out to be a very different year for the team. Despite this, his time with the Red Arrows will be remembered as being an extremely successful period, leading the team throughout the centenary year of the Royal Air Force in 2018 and also during their spectacular tour of North America Tour in 2019, the team"s largest ever visit to Canada and the United States.

During both of these significant events, Sqn Ldr Pert"s BAe Hawk T.1A XX322 carried the names of over 6000 people on its tail, the culmination of the RAF Museum"s successful "Names on a Plane" campaign, which ran throughout 2017.

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.
