 Originally built as an F.4 for the RAF (as XE704), served with 112 Sqn, became a maintenance airframe and then sold back to Hawkers for coversion to T.72 for the Chilean Air Force. Retired to the National Aerospace Museum in Chile, then sold to Embraer registered as PP-XHH for use as a flight test aircraft.
