339. Back Home

23/11/2017

Today, Thursday, Chill and I met up at the Shuttleworth Collection to get 1264 put back together and on display in no. 1 hangar with all her WWI contemporaries.

All went smoothly, and I was able to get a couple of bits done on the trailer while I was there.

Meanwhile there was great excitement in the blister hangar as the Collection’s Spitfire was being weighed; one of the last stages before being allowed back in the air again, after a restoration that’s lasted more than a decade. Can’t wait!

On my way home, I drove past the remains of the Airlander, which has been parked outside the famous Cardington sheds for a couple of years during development.

But, gosh, she does look a mess…
