Peace and quiet, that will be nice after the hustle and bustle of Flying Legends.
The week finished up with the Flight Test being concluded on the Gladiator. All went well just the usual niggles with oil leaks etc. The Flight Test report has been sent off to the Flight Test Department at the CAA and shortly we should be issued with the full Permit to Fly.
Not to much flying for the rest of the season, that will enable us to put maximum manpower on the restoration projects with the P-47G being the lead aircraft.
If any of our Italian friends know of any collectors who have parts for the Fiat CR-42 we would be delighted to hear from them. I can always supply Part No.'s.
The same applies to all of the aircraft in our fleet, we are always on the lookout for parts. Richard Grace brought in a new, still in it's original box, tail wheel suitable for our Gladiator.
We are always interested in aircraft nuts, bolts, washers, British and American
