Building A Model Aircraft Course 2010

Hawk 128 (Hawk T2)

A Hawk T2 of the Royal Air Force in 2009

The Hawk 128 is the new Advanced Jet Trainer (AJT) for the RAF and Royal Navy. The Mk. 128 includes modern LCD displays instead of conventional instrumentation, and allows preparation for flying modern fighter aircraft, particularly the all "glass" Typhoon. It uses the Rolls-Royce Adour 951 engine. The UK Ministry of Defence awarded a Design and Development Contract to BAE Systems on 22 Dec 2004,[18] building on the design of the Australian Mk. 127 and the South African Mk. 120s. A 450 million contract was signed in October 2006 for the production of 28 Hawk 128s.[19] The MoD had originally announced its intention to order 20 aircraft with options for 24 more. The aircraft's maiden flight occurred on 27 July 2005 from BAE Systems' Warton Aerodrome and lasted for 1 hour 18 minutes.[20]
