    I am glad to know that someone has though of restoring these historic aircrafts. But, sad to know that we have no one in India that offers such a service. This is probably why our historic places, and artifacts are not the most well kept or managed when we look at the same in the west. A lot probably has to do with our people who do not take care of what they have. An example: Mother grew-up in a small town near Ahmedabad, Gujarat, called Viramgam. There is a historic lake on the out-skirts of the town named Munsar. The lake is surrounded by some one hundred or so temple like structures. Each temple had a bell and all bells were interconnected such that when the bells in the main temple were rung, all the bells in all temples also rung. My mother had actuall seen that until she was in her early teens. I am about 30 years younger than her, when I was about 7, I remember seeing all the little temples and the main temples and the holes were the bells and the rope used to go, but no bells or temple type activity. The lake was beginning to be used for laundry and for bathing local farmers' cattle. I last visited Munsar Lake when I was almost 17, most, if not all, the little temples were partially damaged or destroyed. And, if you visited that place in the morning, you may even see open defecation in the area surround the lake. To me this is a shame. Sometimes appreciation for the past is necessary in quest for the new. I am glad we are going to try an preserve what ever history that we can, but I hope this becomes a trend and will apply to all historic artifacts and not just a few note worthy items.

    Fantastic news — look forward to an active vintage squadron! The RAF has done some amazing stuff in this area and are rightly proud of their flying heritage.

    Aircraft test equipment

    I agree with the Anonymous commenter, restoring this historic aircraft is not a waste of money. The transformation of the vintage aircraft looks fantastic!
