Description: The BAE Systems Hawk T1 is a single engine jet-powered advanced trainer. Its maiden flight
took place in 1974 and with over nine hundred sold in more than ten variants and is in service
with eighteen countries. The RAF received 175 T1s and serves as an advanced jet and weapons
trainer. Since 1979 until present day the famous RAF Aerobatic Display Team the “Red Arrows”
still operate the Hawk T1A. The Hawk T1 is similar to the AMX, F-5 Freedom Fighter and the
Alpha Jet.

The RAF was replacing their Gnat and two-seater Hawker Hunters with the Hawker Siddeley
model 1182 that the RAF named the Hawk. The first Hawk T1 was delivered in 1976 just prior to
Hawker Siddeley and other companies merging to form British Aerospace in 1977. In a later
merger with Marconi Electronic Systems, BA would become BAE Systems. A total of 176 Hawk
T1s were produced for the RAF. Hawk T1 XX289 was received in October 1979 and converted to
a T1A in 1984 and transferred to 100 Squadron 1995.
