    Miles Sparowjet

    Could anyone advise to what extent, if any, the Miles Sparrowjet G-ADNL, is being restored to fly?

    Many thanks

    Nooooo - I'd rather see a Sparrowhawk any day! It would be interesting to know how much of G-ADNL survived the Upavon fire and has gone into this restoration.

    Not much metal in a Sparrowhawk and when you take out the necessary metallic bits of the Sparrowjet, not much left from that time. Shame it won't emerge as a twin jet, but any Miles product in the skies is better than none!

    CAA have its Reference "G-ADNL/R7" - does that denote rebuild status? If so it's had a busy life.

    Sorry if it's a little off topic and is not quite the real thing, but at the weekend I was sorting through the balsa models my late father made (but mostly never completed) which included the Sparrowjet.
