Sea Vixen FAW.2 XP925 at Haslemere, December 1999; Kevin Burchett

XP925's nose was donated to 1268 Squadron ATC by the DRA at Farnborough in December 1994. She had been on the airfield fire pit for a number of years and was a completely gutted shell. The first headache was to find enough of the parts required to make the restoration project feasible. With this done they now had what amounted to a 1/1 scale Airfix kit with no instructions and little glue. The learning curve would make a roller coaster ride look tame, but good, steady progress is being made. The Sea Vixen Preservation Group was formed and they have joined the British Aviation Preservation Council. Anyone in the Haslemere (Surrey) area wishing to get their hands dirty helping on the project can contact the project leader, Kevin Burchett (not forgetting to remove the .no.junk.mail part of that email address link).
