    I seem to recall there are some technical issue.
    They carried out engine runs at Turweston a while back but when they fix one snag another appeared and I believe there are issues with spar joints. She is supported by jacks at the moment.

    Spookily, yesterday it was reported that they hard started working on her again with a push towards that elusive first flight to be sooner rather than later - as in ages away.
    Images were posted on FB showing various panels off - something not seen for a while.

    I believe it was delivered to Twstn when far from finished. In haste the wing attachment bolts and prop bolts have caused issues and the associated big bills.

    It'll fly when enough money has been thrown at it.

    My mistake - it wasn't a group but the airfield manager's feed. Look like they are publicly viewable - search "Turweston Tower"

    Thanks Daz.

    I thought there might be a flurrry of interest in this exciting news, but seemingly no.

    I guess it is only a Hurricane, and not the proper Battle of Britain fighter................................

    It's a damn sight more interesting than the Hurricane currently sitting ten feet away from me!!!

    Perhaps a mod can change the thread title?

    This is excellent news! It's been a tantalising what, 19 months(?), since it first arrived at Turweston. Well done to HRL for the restoration and the Bygone Aviation team for sorting the snags out. Looking forward to hopefully seeing P3717 at a few shows this year if it sticks around.

    So that's 7 airworthy Hurricanes in the UK now, with another 2 coming on nicely! What times we live in!

    Big well done to all involved in getting her back to the sky, I guess it would be no fun if was easy. Hope to see her at an airshow this year, feels great to think we could have 9 Hurricanes flying before too long.

    Hooray! Maybe there's a chance of the three-ship of R4118, P2902 and P3717 before the year is out
    Thanks for posting!
