      This is the aeroplane built by Norfolk GP Peter Brueggemann as featured on the TV series Plane Ressurection

      A clip of Peter at work ( putting fabric on wing) can be seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nh8q7nFLQSM

      Hopefully, he can soon put this unfortunate set-back behind him.
