Gannet XL500 - RTF

Postby NickB on Mon 24 Oct 2016, 12:38 pm

Hi folks
Posted this question on another forum, but no answers after almost a week... just wondered if anyone had any updates on Gannet AEW 3 XL500?
The last I had heard from a restoration team member was that it was all coming together and a first flight wasn't far off, but that was well over a year ago and I've seen no updates anywhere.
I'm sure I'm not alone in looking forward to seeing this wonderful machine drone overhead again?!
Cheers
Nick

Any update on this project?
It's gone very quiet - when I spoken to the team >3 years ago, they were confident FF wasn't far off...
Would be so lovely to see a Gannet back in the air again.

Bit of a thread resurrection.
SWAG website now has a dedicated section for the airframes being used in the new museum ( http://www.southwalesaviationgroup.co.uk/p/south-wales-aviation-museum.html )... note the third one down the list.
Don't know if that means they've given up on their plans to RtoF it.
