On a somewhat Arctic Sunday a few volunteers and TFC staff were in at Hangar number 2, at the same time we were able to catch up on the latest news on aircraft in the hangar from Martin.

First is that the Hawk successfully completed an air test in preparation for a flight to La Breguet towards the end of this coming week – weather conditions allowing. The Harvard engine run identified a problem which will require a replacement carburettor while the P-47 had a successful test on new parts in the fuel system.

This coming week should also see the P-40b undergoing engine runs while the Spitfire Mk- XIV is partway through its annual inspection.
