A Hunter T66 is preserved in the local park just opposite the Jorhat Circuit House. The aircraft is painted the color scheme of the No.2 Target Tow Flight, “The Banners”. The aircraft is placed in a public park called Gandhi Park and was first reported to us by Sanjay Simha way back in early 2000s.

In 2015, Jeffrey van Summeren contributed the following two photographs that he took in May 2000, probably the earliest photos of this aircraft. Jeffrey’s photograph shows the Hunter in almost pristine condition with the colorful Banners paint scheme.  The photos do not show a wire fence as the more recent pictures have shown.
