Hawker Hunter T. Mark 62

The Hawker Hunter T.Mark 62 was the designation given to a single two-seat trainer based on the British T.7 that was ordered by Peru. The aircraft was ordered in 1959 and made its maiden flight on 15 September 1959. It was similar to the T.7, but with an aerial fairing mounted on the top of the fuselage, just above the wing roots. This was used for a radio compass.

The T.Mark 62 was delivered in 1960, and served with Escuadron Caza 14 at Limatambo alongside Peru's Hunter Mark 52s. It remained in service into the 1980s, outliving the Mark 52s which were retired in 1976.
