AWAITING IN THE WINGS

Two further Hawker biplanes, including the only known surviving Hawker Audax (K-5600). The airframe is near compete and an excellent ex-Afghan Hawker Hind (L-7181), recovered with the Shuttleworth’s Hind as well as the RAF Museum’s and the Canadian National Aviation Museum’s example (all on display or flying); this aircraft is being converted to a dual control trainer version, one being found in Afghanistan. And finally a 1941 Yak-1, with the Klimov V 12 engine having been rebuilt in the engine overhaul facility, whilst the airframe was started by a sub-contractor and then taken over by Retrotec.
