    Good news for Stow Maries

    They were talking this morning on BBC Essex, about Stow Maries being awarded another lottery heritage grant

    £4.2 million.......... very nice.
    Engine Failure:.... A condition which occurs when all fuel tanks mysteriously become filled with air.

    A more worthy aviation cause would be hard to find. Let's hope that will fund a WW1 hangar: there's one still with its roof (just) at Filton...

    There are more at Sundridge and Eastchurch. I think those at Sundridge are in danger.

    There was an original ww1 37/39sqn hangar in Essex at Moreton.... I tried to save it, but developers moved in.

    Stowmaries is a little gem.

    The folk at Hooton Park are dab hands now in creating Belfast trusses and mounting them on the supporting walls. Maybe an order could be possible?

    I thought the Sundridge hangars were protected as listed buildings?

    Might well be but that only means you can't change them, doesn't stop you letting them fall down

    Great news if funds allow for more hangar at Stow Maries.
    What is the news behind the story that TVAL's Snipe is returning to New Zealand ?

    Not just the Snipe, but also a BE.2: http://ww1aviationheritagetrust.co.uk/?p=2748
