28/04/2021- ZE360 leaves DFTDC Manston.

The BPAG are pleased to announce that we have been offered space at Manston Airport for the work on ZE360 to continue. Therefore, on the morning of 25/04/2021, just over 30 years after it arrived and following months of careful planning, ZE360 finally left DFTDC Manston and made the short journey over the road back to airport premises. Despite pinch points and tight clearance along public roads and a somewhat circuitous route around the airport taxiway and runway, the aircraft arrived safely at the apron, having coped with the stresses of the day admirably. We must thank Tony Freudmann, CEO of RiverOak Strategic Partners Ltd (the airport owners) for their generous and timely offer. More updates to come very soon.

More pics from the day are available in the ZE360 Restoration Gallery.
