Re: British Phantom Aviation Group

Re: British Phantom Aviation Group

A dry and surprising warm weekend of 6th-7th November saw BPAG volunteers continuing work preparing ZE360 for its eventual dismantling. In the past much of the activity has been around the aircraft itself but, as reported recently, the group now owns a universal stand, a vital item needed for the en...

Re: British Phantom Aviation Group

While the focus of recent attention has been the relocation of XT597 and XT905 and the associated activity at BPAG’s new home at Cotswold Airport, the last few weeks have also seen work restart on ZE360 at Manston. Following on from the aircraft’s initial arrival at the airport in April 2021, on 11t...

Re: British Phantom Aviation Group

A poignant moment at the recent CockpitFest was the official handover of Chris Draper’s watercolour portrait of our friend and associate Dave Gledhill. All done in the shadow of XV490, which was a nice touch. You can check out more of Chris’s beautiful work here- www.chrisdraperartist.com/aircraft h...

Re: British Phantom Aviation Group

Due to the enthusiastic demand for some of our crowdfunder rewards, many of which sold out very quickly, we have decided to bring forward something special that was initially pencilled in for later this year.

Re: British Phantom Aviation Group

A BPAG team have spent the weekend tidying a storage building in the north and we now have access to the fin we will use for the ‘Your Name On A Fin’ crowdfunder reward. As soon as the rudder is re-attached and the paintwork touched up, this genuine ex-Luftwaffe F-4 fin will be ready to have your na...
