    Kennet seafire

    Any update if it will fly during the 2012 season or is the damage much worse than first thought?

    Hi Mark
    336 has now reached the top of the "to do list" after the Skyraider and Wasp annual servicings and the T6 going on to a UK permit (G-KAMY). Also, the FNHT Sea Fury servicing together with Weald Aviation has taken a fair chunk of winter (back to flight very soon).
    We hope to have the Seafire back in the air this year, probably late summer/autumn.
    Will try and keep all posted, poss with piccies.
    Flying must be easy. If it was difficult, groundcrew would have to do it!

    Really good news as the Kennet Seafire is one of my favourite aircraft on the display circuit.

    There is nothing to fear but fear itself. And spiders. F**k spiders.

    This should help ease the pain of waiting.
