Our EE Lightning sets off for restoration (click here)

Monday 5th Feb 2018 was the day we saw our EE Lightning leave us. Not for long though. The aircraft is about to undergo a professional restoration to a museum quality static exhibit. The reason? the aircraft is going to be at the prestigious RAF Cosford Air Show 2018 and join a list of iconic aircraft that defended our skies over the years. It’s the RAF 100 years aniversary this year.

The restoration is being carried out at St. Athan by GJD Services. The aircraft will then be displayed in June at Cosford – before making it’s way straight back to us for display here in Newquay. What an amazing new exhibit we will have.

Here are a few photos of the departure from our centre today. A very exciting project for us.  1 2 5Loading up
