Close-up view of the enlarged 'Sabrina' link collector and right engine intake blank.
Hunter 105 on a wet & windy day at Duxford showing to advantage the 'blast deflectors' on the Aden cannon blast tubes and the enlarged 'Sabrina' link collectors which were a feature on these exported aircraft.  For those curious about why the name 'Sabrina' was given to these link collectors, suffice to say that they were named for a young and well endowed  English female television star of the late 50' and early 60's.

Close up view of the nose gear and starboard Aden 'blast deflectors'.  The yellow 'bar' and wingnut visible at the top of the nose gear leg is a part of the nose undercarriage ground lock which, along with the main gear groundlocks, was something that was always a feature of parked Hunters, regardless of Mark.
