Chris Roberts reports on progress…
The project is alive and well. However, over the past 18 months the programme has suffered as might be expected given the restrictions on movement and mixing. We have also had difficulties at Brooklands because they are unable to continue supporting the project in the way it was agreed at the outset. It was nearly a perfect storm because it looked as though our future access to Dunsfold was also going to be curtailed but the housing development has been put on hold so we are still there.
There is some good news because we have been able to buy a large
piece of replacement fuselage (for a very modest cost) and this will
save us a year or more in restoration time. This will help to put the
programme back on track and now that things have opened up we will be
able to re-engage with Kingston council. Expect a more detailed brief
on the project status in the next Newsletter.
