As part of our never ending search for Phantom parts, we noticed that a rear canopy was listed for sale on e-bay last week. We are pleased to be able to announce that, in an incredibly selfless gesture, the owner has instead donated it to the BPAG to be fitted to our F-4J(UK), ZE360. Needless to say we are very grateful to the owner, Graham Gilbert, for his generosity.
Incidentially, Graham is a trustee of Bentwaters Cold War Museum which- if you are not familiar with it- is well worth a visit, being the home of FGR.2 XV401 as well as a number of other classic cold war aircraft. More info on the museum can be found here- http://www.bcwm.org.uk
