BAe Hawk T.1 XX246 / 95-Y RAF No.100 Squadron 95th Anniversary Scheme, Leeming, North Yorkshire, 2012
As 2018 marks the Centenary of the Royal Air Force, we can expect to see many RAF Squadrons commemorating the occasion by presenting one of their aircraft in attractive special markings. This is always popular with aircrew and enthusiasts alike and over the years has resulted in some memorable and extremely photogenic aircraft in the skies of Britain. As one of the oldest Squadrons in the RAF, No.100 Squadron are rightly proud of their heritage and to mark the occasion of their 95th Anniversary in 2012, they presented one of their BAe Hawk T.1 aircraft in a striking Bomber Command scheme.
Avro Lancaster EE139 ‘Phantom of the Ruhr’ represented the Squadron for the first 29 of its operational missions, before going on to amass an impressive tally of 121 total missions during WWII and was used as the inspiration for this Hawk scheme. Applied to the Commanding Officer’s aircraft, Hawk XX246 instantly became one of the most popular aircraft in the Royal Air Force and a fitting tribute to both the history of 100 Squadron and the men and women who have served over the years.

As one of the most successful post war British jets, the BAe Hawk has provided training support to thousands of RAF fast jet pilots during its 42 year service career and continues to do so to this day. This particularly distinctive Hawk wears a scheme originally applied to Avro Lancaster EE139 ‘Phantom of the Ruhr’ during WWII and was intended to mark the 95th anniversary of RAF No.100 Squadron – it includes a striking skull and crossbones on the underside of the fuselage.

Much the same as the other Hawks in the range, however it is disappointing to see that they have obviously used the Red Arrow Hawk as a template. This is obvious by the retention of the smoke system pipes in the tailcone. Being a MoD Hawk engineer I can say with some authority that no jet outside the RAFAT has a smoke kit fitted. This smacks of poor research or lacklustre care for detail. Also the front seat on my aircraft is not correct seated and is angled towards side of cockpit which is annoying.
