The British Phantom Aviation Group are delighted to announce the saving of another UK Phantom. XT597 has been purchased by Mr Mark Abbott, a senior member of the BPAG management team.
Mark has naturally appointed the BPAG to manage the aircraft on his behalf and as it is private property- not a BPAG group asset- all the costs of transport and restoration will be met by the owner. The BPAG will be providing the workforce and the facilities for the preservation work on XT597 to be carried out and in return the aircraft will, when ready, be on display as part of the BPAG collection. Details of access for supporters and visitors will be forthcoming.
More information on XT597 and it’s history can be found here http://bpag.co.uk/projects/xt597/ and on our social media-
