    Excellent stuff. And its going to be upwards of 75% original (according to the story) which makes it even better. While I love the new manufactured 190s and 262s, to have an original and noteworthy example (Battle of France) flying is all the more special!

    Great news. Also happy to read that 60 more Spitfires are in the process of being restored.

    Always great to have more Hurricanes back flying, however I noted in the article that the supplier of the tubing needed has closed, such a shame.

    Hello All,

    This is great news!

    I was fortunate enough to know Kenneth McGlashan and co-author his story "Down to Earth", published by Grub Street in the UK.

    I look forward to seeing the Hurricane take to the skies again.

    Cheers
