Warbirds for sale!

Following the decision to break up the Russell Aviation group Hawker Hurricane XII and, probably more excitingly, Messerschmitt Bf109E 'Emil' are currently both for sale. Both fighters would make fine additions to any Warbird collection.
Meanwhile Spitfire Mk.IX MK912 is moving back to the UK to Biggin Hill airport for a new owner as is Mk.V LZ844 and the remains of MkIV TE566 from Australia.

New P-40 for UK!
