    Facebook Restoration Threads

    Since many projects have their own Facebook thread, I'd thought I'd start a thread with all the links. These are not museum or business pages, but restoration pages or groups for specific airframes. Feel free to add projects!

    Great idea for a thread - hopefully this can be added to and kept as a real resource for people to come to and see what pages they aren't aware of. Social media really is changing the face of historic aircraft preservation!

    One to add is the Membury Airfield Memorial Flight page who are restoring C-47 42-100521 'Night Fright' which is currently being shipped to Coventry from the USA - https://www.facebook.com/MemburyMemorialFlight/?fref=ts

    A lovely list.

    Would it be worth pinning to the top of the Historic Aviation page?

    The BCWM XX741 restoration does have its own Youtube channel, but all the restoration news stories are contained on the "Sepecat Jaguar Appreciation Society group" on FB.

    A few more people have "liked" and followed the Luton Page as a result - most happy with that!

    while ours is a museum page, one of the main focuses for us is Vulcan XL319, all of our updates are on there for the restoration which has just restarted after a long break https://www.facebook.com/NELSAMOFFICIAL/
