| ||G-ARRM which is owned by Brooklands Aviation Museum, has been undergoing a 5 year preservation/restoration programme by volunteers under the aegis of the Shoreham Airport Historical Association at Shoreham Airport, since summer 2005. |
Our power plant specialists based in the Hemel Hempstead area have sourced a pair of engines. the first has been completed and is on display at Shoreham. The second engine is currently being prepared by them. They have also sourced a second propeller which has been restored to mint condition along with the one original prop which survived.
Because some major components had gone missing during its travels over the years, we are constantly looking for replacements, serviceable or damaged.
At present, we are building a new tailplane from scratch to drawings produced by former Beagle draughtsman Roy West who sadly died shortly before Christmas. This part was unique to this first prototype so a production part would not do. We have the original elevators.
We still need a starboard flap of any standard and it does not need to be serviceable. We can modify and /or repair as necessary.
Small items needed are, 2 off Grimes type anti-collision lights, a tail and port nav light lens/fitting assy, an E2B standby compass and a "through the windscreen" type Outside Air Temp gauge.
The aircraft is nomally available to view between 1000 and 1700 daily, subject to availability of volunteers on sight. All are welcome.
