29/08/09 Hunter E-424 Clean-up
On the 29th August it was time to give our Hawker Hunter F51 E-424 a clean-up. Here Bill is helping me set up.
Aircraft don't like being left outside in all weathers. E-424 and the surrounding area had acquired a thick coat of algee and moss.
After a number of buckets of water and a lot of elbow grease most of the skin was clean again.
I really am feeling tired and rung out!
Phil, John and I also removed three heaped wheel barrow loads of moss and gave the tarmac area a good sweep down.
Whilst not perfect we were pleased with the 8 man hours of scrubbing and sweeping. E-424 is now due for some more red paint to blend in the patched areas.
If you are interested in aircraft and can spare a few hours to help out, why not get involved?
