Two weeks ago the #RAF Museum’s Conservation Team was doing an incredible job on the re-assembly of our Hawker #Typhoon, the only remaining complete #aircraft of its type in the world.
Our Typhoon had been on a 4-year loan at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa. It was safely transported to the RAF Museum London in October in several sections – without its wheels, wings, #propeller and parts of its fuselage connected to its main frame.
Our amazing Conservation team from #Cosford rebuilt the Typhoon in three days, attaching back the wings, the wheels and all other parts.
Now the work is completed, our Typhoon has taken its rightful place in our ‘#BattleofBritain’ exhibition at our #London site.
In this video we show its re-assembly. After watching it why not plan your visit to the Museum to marvel at this incredible aircraft in all its glory. We are open daily from 10.00am. Admission is free.
