    I thought it was about time as a new member, I shared with you what I do as a volunteer at the Midland Air Museum here in England.

    For the last two years of my six year membership at MAM I have been restoring a DeHavilland Sea Vixen FAW.2, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Along with treating corrosion, hydraulic leaks and electrical problems, I have completly re-painted the airframe.

    I have posted pictures for you to view of the aircraft to give you some idea of the work load I have had to contend with. Please enjoy........:)

    Very nice work! It's a labor of love, and the finished product really shows that.

    No unfortunatly not. She is purely static, but we do have plans to get her systems up and running pretty soon.
