In order to facilitate the removal of ZE360’s engines, prior to the wing/fuselage split, the BPAG have recently purchased a vital piece of ground equipment, similar to the item in this photo. The Universal Stand has, as its name suggests, a variety of uses. In the case of the F4-J it was used with adaptor frames to remove and fit engines, which is exactly what we will need it to do in the very near future.

We are now urgently searching for a pair of adaptor frames (the yellow items in the pic). Should anyone out there have any knowledge of the whereabouts and/or availability of these items, please feel free to get in touch. Thank you.
