Right, off to get a lottery ticket.
Glad she is going to a good home.

Looks better than I thought she might! Back seat very tempting I must say.

Agreed! For just one extra pane of Perspex each side & extended canopy rails it doesn't look too bad when the canopies are closed. Thought it was gonna be a right mess! :shock:

I know, "it's the owner money", "he can do as if wishes", "paint it pink with blue spots if he so desires" and yes "I could have bought the airframe (no chance there) and do as I wished" but sorry, it doesn't look right! :sad:

I'm afraid that I just dont understand the trend in converting airframes into 2 seaters although the upside, a Hurricane will fly again, so not all bad...

You can't sell passenger rides in a single-seater... It's a very lucrative business now.

Glad to see the aircraft staying in the UK. Easily the best looking Hurricane around, in my opinion even with the two seat conversion.

Saw Pegs flew for the first time since conversion in the last few days. Well done to all the team, its kept the look of the original and hopefully will aid training pilots in the future as well as rides.

Still looks way better than a two seater Spitfire conversion.

My thoughts exactly.

For a two seater, it looks about the best that could possibly have been achieved, so good job all round. :clap:

Certainly does.

I've noticed the prices on their website are a couple of hundred quid more for the same duration flight in Pegs compared to the same duration flight in a Spitfire.

Need to start saving for a flight in Pegs, especially as the flight I had tentatively been planning for the Collings Foundation 2-seat TP-51C during another trip to stay with friends in California has likely gone by wayside, not only after they stopped flying it a couple of years ago in favour of the TF-51D, but also what happened last year with 909 :sleepy:
