We are pleased to say that we have the undercarriage training rig from the Phantom Ground School at RAF Coningsby. On loan to us from Mike Davey, it will join the hydraulic systems trainer rig that the BPAG were gifted by Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre, which will also be restored as a fully functioning exhibit.
The undercarriage rig was collected from JetArt Aviation in Selby, where it has been stored for several years, and transported down to Cotswold Airport. With the generous assistance of Air Salvage International it was offloaded in some atrocious weather . Thanks to ASI for their help and to Matt Gilby for not only providing the trailer and tow vehicle, but for doing ALL the driving.
