I might be a bit biased, as I work with the thing, but I always thought the Hawk was fairly good looking in the TMk1 format.

The Finns Midnight Hawks team aircraft (Hawk 51) look great.

The Hawk is a classic in the nice to look at stakes.

At Warton I spent more than a few minutes in one of the hangars where a Hawk was parked more or less under the wing of a Tornado, it was a very visually interesting sight. Huge brutal and boxy vs rather sleek and elegant, the contrast was marked. Would have made a great photo, but for obvious reasons that would have been a major no-no.
 
Had to go to Dorset last week.

National train strike on said a friend.

So they said lets fly down instead.....2 engines better than 1!

This is not the actual plane just a stock image.
 
Yep I think the crashes off Flamborough proved that, Binbrook, quick spin round the north sea, right we are at Flamborough, she is empty mate, we are going swimming.




I thought that second incident sounded familiar.
Apparently, according to some, the pilot was abducted by UFOs. :cyclopsani:

I grew up near what was then RAF Chivenor so I saw Hawks all the time - in those days they were grey/green. However I think that it looks more striking when painted black - this must have started when it was decided to paint all training aircraft black.

On a backwards looking tangent, I wonder what a black Jet Provost would have looked like?
