People's Mosquito

The remains of Mosquito NF.36 RL249 have been acquired by the People's Mosquito group - who are dedicated to restoring and flying a Mosquito within the UK. Many parts will be manufactured new but parts will be sourced from other areas as much as possible.

Klemm Flies

SE-BGA Klemm 35D flew for the first time in 50 years from Hatunaholm, Sweden. It is now the third example of the type on the Swedish register.

Pembroke On The Move

Percival Pembroke WV740 has moved to St. Athan, Wales, and will be operated by Hunter Flying Ltd. The new owner intends to fly the aircraft regularly at airshows.

Elvington Restorations Complete

The Yorkshire Air Museum rolled out it's de Havilland Dove and SE.5a reproduction aircraft on March 27th for engine runs.

20 Spits Found!

Around 20 potential airframes of Spitfire Mk.XIVs have been found in Burma. Prime Minister David Cameron has secured an agreement to excavate the fighters and return them to Britain. With the large number of airframes the potential airworthy examples could greatly increase the current UK population.

Viggen Classic Jet

Saab Viggen 37098 joined the Swedish Historic Flight after years of restoration work on the aircraft. It joins a very unique collection of classic jet aircraft. It has entered the Swedish Civil Register as SE-DXN.
