    Was hoping that 2017 would be the year that we see Gannet AEW.3 XL500 flying.

    Maybe 2018!?

    The Fighter Collection's Sea Fury doesn't really count as new surely? They've just put some ruddy American donk up front - pah!

    I'm with DragonRapide, the DH.9 is a very exciting prospect!

    From New Zealand there'll likely be Rod Lewis' Mosquito FB.VI PZ474 and Jerry Yagen's P-39Q.

    Time for me to start a new annual tradition: the FHCAM Stuka!

    DH.9! Had forgotten about that. Mosquito OK, P-39Q too but Spitfires or P-51s are not exactly exciting prospects.

    "Hurricane 501", V7497/G-HRLI must be a good prospect for 2018. Can never have too many Hurricanes, especially one with 501 Squadron heritage.

    Surely 'new historics' is a contradiction in terms, unless they're all replicas?.
    Whatever happened to the Proctor that was being worked on in ( I think) deepest East Anglia ?

    I thought the Bobsleigh had flown? Seem to recall an open day-type thing. Or has that not occurred yet?

    Was told by the other day the pilot of Hurricane V4797 hopes to be upside down at 300mph by the middle of next year!

    Surely the shuttleworth spit is in with a shout too?

    No, SR462 will certainly not emerge in 2018

    The Proctor in deepest East Anglia is indeed still being worked on, we have light at the end of a very long tunnel. Big set back with the company tasked to provide a zero timed Queen 2 engine. In five years little apart from some NDT testing was done, and a crazy invoice for well very little! We will hopefully soon place the engine with a specialist who says by spring 18 will provide us with an as new rebuilt engine.

    Sad that Joy Lofthouse former ATA pilot has left us. I had hoped so much to get her aloft once again in the very Proctor she did her type check out in April 1943. This was under the watchful eye of training captain Denis Lead at Barton ATA training field near Luton, long since closed. Provided the engine comes together in the time frame suggested, we are still hopeful of a first flight in 2018. Still a great deal to do but the rebuild is complete and covering almost done. We will soon be painting the Proctor in her exact wartime camouflage, sorting cabin trim, then final assembly and the magic test flight, her first flight in 66 years. We have just the man in mind to take her aloft, very experienced in classic tail wheel types, in other words a safe pair of hands. I will endeavour to post pictures over the Christmas break, if I say so myself she's now looking rather magnificent.

    Ref post 21. FB, does 'FIR still have the Bristol Cherub in it?
    Ref post 26. If the gods are willing I should have the Proctor V back up and will have the Messenger definitely.

    If all goes according to plan, the 1947 Slingsby Type 28. Better known as the Type 21b prototype. It has been seven years in the making but the fabric will be put on in the next few months.

    Although it’s still a way off, I’m looking forward to seeing the Black Widow fly at the MAAM.
