Member Bryan Lea recently went to a talk given at the Milton Keynes Aviation Society. The subject was the overseeing of the restoration of Hawker Typhoon RB396. The intention is to return the aircraft to flight powered by a Napier Sabre engine. Something that has not been seen or heard, for nearly 70 years. The target date is for RB396 to be airworthy in time for the 80th anniversary of D-Day (June 2024). You can read more about the project and support it here

Peterborough Model Flying Club is mourning the passing of one of our favourite and most dedicated members Tony Beckett. Tony was the creator of this website which has become one of the most visited and enjoyed aeromodelling sites in the world. To commemorate his untimely passing one of the Indoor Flying meetings to be held at Bushfield Sports Centre this Autumn will be dedicated to his name. Until we have worked out the details of transferring the management of this website we ask for everybody's patience.
With Flying Aces over and the last of
the PMFC freeflight competitions on Friday week it is time to think about
