Update as at 18.08.06 - Purchased from Alan Cooper Feb 05 by Jim Alexander. Completely stripped of fabric, including the fus, and all woodwork inspected and minor repairs where needed. Recovered it in "Diatex", standard dope treatment to silver, then finished in synthetic yellow and Blue. Engine (Obtained separately) stripped and rebuilt under PFA. The PFA accepted the transfer from a C of A in a fairly painless process. It flies nicely, and gives a useable load of 552lbs. Now based out of a private strip at Lichfield.
