Vampire Progress

April, 2009

Restoration of the Museum’s most recent aircraft acquisition, Vampire T11 XH313, continues apace. The tail booms have been removed for corrosion protection and are due to be reinstalled with all control linkages in place in early in April. Next will come restoration work on the nose area of the aircraft where some of the wooden construction is showing signs of its age. Meanwhile work on the cockpit continues and radio reinstallation is expected shortly.
