    Bearing in mind that they probably haven't got a Spitfire to finish first, and a fleet of 40 plus other aircraft to maintain as well, it could be a fairly good bet.

    'PVT had two crashes (at least) in 1967 and 1973.

    G-WCMO Grumman FM-2 Wildcat ex Bu 55404
    All registered 27-9-13 to Bygone Engineering Ltd.


    Something for everyone!
    Interestingly G-WCME is one of the old CAF aircraft which was flown as N681S. Recorded as crashing last in 2003 although apparently rebuilt and sold. Seen below in 2001


    N681S in 2001 now G-WCME by AJCDuxman, on Flickr

    also G-WCMI was previously flown in the USA as N12371 - it was apparently involved in fatal crashed on 14/10/83 and was then sold. Seen below in 1983 possibly just before its accident (photo by John Kerr)

    That looks like a P166 behind - possibly rarer now than the Martlet / Hellcat

    re" More info on the Wildcats can be found here" actually 2 of them: Bu 86750 and Bu 55404 -

    G-WCME Grumman FM-2 Wildcat ex N585FM -> Bu 55585 ex N681S
    G-WCMI Grumman FM-2 Wildcat ex N750FM -> Bu 86750 <- ex Wild Warbirds ex N12371
    G-WCMO Grumman FM-2 Wildcat ex Bu 55404 <- Lake Michigan Recovery 1993 <- ex Wild Warbirds

    So are these going to be restored in Cornwall then?

    Ok so i may be a bit lost with all this and not followed the post correct but does this mean that their are potentially 4 more Wildcats being restored to fly joining the TFC one ?

    I agree Moggy. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the only P166 in the UK at present is G-APVE currently with the science museum and, last I knew, stored at Wroughton. Oh how I'd love to see one back in the air. I haven't seen one airborne since PVE used to be in and out of Kidlington on a fairly frequent basis.

    I suspect the one at Wroughton is G-APWY

    Correct, it is 'PWY.

    Worth repeating this link and reading to learn about the Royal Gull and the adventures it has taken part in (including Loch Ness!).

    The 'Royal Gull' is a Piaggio P.136 amphibian. The Piaggio P.166 is a purely land based twin.

    I am fairly sure that I saw this aircraft fly at Southampton Seawings show in 2000,it's a beauty.

    The rest of the Army Historic flight have now been placed on the UK register.
    Adding to the recent allocation of Scout XT626 as G-CIBW:
    Sioux XT131 becomes G-CICN,
    Beaver XP820 becomes G-CICP,
    Auster AOP.9 XR244 becomes G-CICR,
    Alouette XR379 becomes G-CICS.

    What is the benefit of allocating a civil registration to a plane that is not allowed to fly (Alouette) and was never civil registered in the first place?

    Why wouldn't an Alouette be allowed to fly?

    Are you perhaps confusing this with their Skeeter, which is a type no longer permitted to fly on the U.K. register?

    Regarding the three wildcat additions to the register, it appears a website for "bygoneengineering" is being constructed: http://www.bygoneengineering.com/

    Have heard Martin-Baker are in the process of G- ing their two Meteors at the moment, anybody confirm? What with AACHF going G- are we going to see the 'historics' moving off the military books onto the civil register?

    Ah thanks for correcting me the memory isn't what it used to be. Wonder what happened to PVE?

    Correct , you did. I still prefer the 166 to the 136 though. Not having the flying boat hull allows for much cleaner lines.

    You could argue that the Avanti is the pretty daughter of the 166 !

    Registered on Feb 6th was Bucker Bu181B-1 Bestmann G-CIEZ. This is ex Swedish built D-ECES, which was with Air Classik for many years as a static exhibit on the roof at Frankfurt and Dusseldorf. Probably a restoration project, it's registered to the owner of MS317 G-MOSA and Auster G-AJEE.

    A picture from a slide in my collection ( photographer A Jansenn) of this Bestmann when displayed at Frankfurt on 28/8/1976 as 'D-EMIL'

    A few recent items spotted on G-INFO:

    Tiger Moth G-ANJK (inactive since around 1985) was restored 7-3-14

    Titan T-51 Mustang G-CIFD is being finished as a 'Razorback' version. Pics in the latest LAA Magazine.

    BIG news is G-TMPV, a Tempest V ex JN768 registered 13-3-14 to Richard Grace. There's a story behind this ex-maintenance airframe which was recovered from a scrapyard a while ago still wearing some V-I kill markings. A rather exciting prospect.....

    It was one of two cockpit structures recovered. One of them was used as a spares source to rebuild the RAFM Tempest II in return for the corroded rear fuselage off the Tempest II.

    Do you need provenance as well? As far as I am aware there are very few (if any) specific data plates on a typhoon or tempest....you have to rely on the original scheme or hopefully stencils around from mods done at the makers..
