Hawker Typhoon RB396

The team hoping to restore RB396 to flight have purchased a genuine four blade Typhoon/Tempest spinner, thought to be the only one in the world, and a complete rear empennage, tail unit and rudder. Other items, including a complete anti shimmy tail wheel set up and the tail wheel doors from a Tempest ll, were also purchased.

It is hoped that the build could start in the first half of 2018.

There is more on this project on their own website.
