      I wonder if this is the aircraft that is briefly mentioned in Kermit Weeks vintage V12s video where he asks what it's going in but is told it's a secret! Might be wishful thinking but I'd love to see a BF110 in the air one day!

            Thanks for sharing Tony, I'd only seen Randy's earlier video which was a slideshow of some photos - he posted about 50 great detail and overall images on Facebook.

            Dave McDonald from Classic Wings magazine has confirmed with FHCAM and shared on a couple of other forums that the bulk of the project consists of R-4 WkNr.6234 - one of the former Sir Tim Wallis aircraft and that which was registered to Glenn Lacey as G-STUK - and minor parts from R-2 WkNr.5709.

              Hi
              Interestingly I purchased this Stuke relic at the War and Peace show around 6 to 7 years ago,the seller said that it was Stuka and that it had the history with it, he had a pile of other twisted relics in the same pile but he wasn't to sure what they were from.

              I researched the Werk number 0875709 L1+ZK and was pleasantly surprised with its history and now it's future history, I guess it may of possibly parted with the bulk of the wreckage at some point whilst it was in the UK.
              i think it is part of the inner wing or situated where the inner wing and fuselage meet would anyone be able to confirm its location.

              Certainly a restoration from the very elite

              Very exciting times ahead

                Just to add to add to the above post that it measures approx. 29 inches x 12 inches, also looking at the fuel pipe work I would think these would of possibly been added for extra wing fuel tanks.

                  Nice find, hawker, especially with history.

                    Did these originate with the Jim Pearce recoveries?

                      That Stuka looks mightily impressive. It just shows that, with enough money, you can have anything you want!

                      Will it have a genuine Jumo 211 or will something like an Allison or Merlin or even a Griffon be used to power it?

                          Hi DaveF68
                          Im not to sure where this had originated from but maybe the label may help as someone out there may possibly recognise it.

                            DaveF68: DaveM2 may have more recent/accurate information, but Goodall says the R-4 WkNr.6234 is a 1992 Jim Pearce recovery while the R-2 WkNr.5709 was recovered in 1996 and went to "Royal Air Warbird Finders, England".

                              What a monster it is. The Stuka has so much presence in the air or on the ground. I wonder how long it will be before it flies.

                                The current word is a year-and-a-half to two years.

                                  Here's hoping that like the NZ Mosquitos, they chose to use the knowledge gained to bring a couple more back to life.
                                  The RAF museums was said to be in pretty good nick to the point they managed to start the engine, though sadly I doubt they would allow the work to be done.

                                    Many of the RAF Museums Axis aeroplanes were run regularly when they were at St Athen. It's a shame they weren't kept live at Cosford.

                                      There are a handful of videos on YouTube of types like the Me210(?) and two-seat Fw190 being run at St Athan, when I learned their Stuka was started I was very disappointed that no-one seems to have filmed it. Or, rather, allowed their film to be uploaded.

                                      Hearing a Jumo run is one aspect of an airworthy Stuka that I've been excited and curious about since childhood.

                                        This will be very fun to watch. What a treat it would be to fly it!

                                          How does someone go about getting a test pilot for this? Seeing as one hasn't flown for a bloody long time?
                                          is it Just a case of reading pilots notes and studying the type then going flying or is it more complex than that?
