The project are exceptionally pleased to announce that in this last week, our first structural assembly in the restoration of AA810 has been completed. This is an entirely new build unit as the original tail was not located at the crash site, however it will now be fitted out with original wartime Spitfire stock components that we have managed to source. Work continues on the tailplanes and when these too are completed, the whole empennage will be relocated to Kennet Aviation's workshops in Bedfordshire.
Meanwhile work continues on the main fuselage frames and new items are being combined with the serviceable fuselage components previously recovered from the remains of AA810. We remain on track for the main fuselage sections to be placed into the final build jig later this autumn.
