An oldie, but a goldie at Al Ain Aerobatic Show

Miss Demeanour, a vintage Hawker Hunter aircraft with eye-catching livery, looks set to be the ‘belle of the ball’ as she makes her Middle Eastern debut at this month’s Al Ain Aerobatic Show.

For the first time in Emirates. Miss Demeanour’s owner Jonathon Whaley, an ex-Royal Navy and Fleet Air Arm pilot, will be showing off the single seat, high speed civilianised jet fighter to crowds at the show, the Middle East’s premier aerobatics event, when it takes to the skies over Al Ain International Airport from January 27-30.

Miss Demeanour’s flight routine will remain under wraps until Whaley (a veteran pilot who started flying in 1965) inspects the Al Ain site. “My displays are only planned ahead in a broad brush aspect, unless I have flown the display site regularly,” he explained. “I have a selection of manoeuvres that I link together depending on the display site, but my routines will also change depending on whether or not the display starts on take-off and ends on landing, or an overhead arrival and then departing after the display.” Miss Demeanour will appear on all four days of the show – the eighth in the series, flying against the backdrop of one of the world’s oldest desert oasis settlements. She will join the biggest ever line-up in the history of the event with 23 international teams taking part.

“She’s a classic British Jet Fighter in a paint scheme that I designed to show off the beautiful lines of this historic aircraft marque. I will fly her with gusto and, I hope, demonstrate just how much I enjoy flying her, in the hope that my level of enjoyment is matched by the audience,” said Whaley.

Miss Demeanour’s name, said Whaley, “came out of the blue many years ago when I promised myself my first warbird would have a name and I enjoyed the double meaning. It’s not a felony to paint a Hunter so colourfully – it’s just a ‘Miss Demeanour’!”
