Limited edition Hunter prints are now available to buy from the Squadron. The pencil drawing by Squadron member Master Aircrew Andy Redfearn, depicts Squadron Leader Tam Syme's Hunter FGA9, XE620, whilst he was OC 8 Squadron, 1963-1965. Andy completed the drawing whilst deployed in May/June 2013, missing the Hunter unveiling by weeks; and the opportunity to get Tam's signature whilst he was visiting the UK. Luckily, during a family holiday in Florida, Andy was able to visit Tam and get a limited number of prints signed. This limited edition of 40 prints are available alongside a second edition, numbering 350 prints, signed by the current OC 8 Squadron, Wing Commander Jim Beldon. Both editions are also signed by the artist. All proceeds from the sale will be used to complete the Squadron Memorial, that will be positioned in front of the new Hunter Gate Guardian. All remaining proceeds will go towards the upcoming Squadron Centenary in 2015.
Printed on 350gms Explorer paper, both editions are identical in size, 43.5cm x 37.3cm (17.1in x 14.7in). The drawing size is 33.5cm x 26 cm (13.2in x 10.2in).
