A NEW HOME FOR XP header image


The fantastic guys at Gatwick Fire Service have agreed to pass full ownership of G-CEXP to UKHAT. But they’re just as committed to her future as we are, so they’ve made the proviso that she’ll become ours when we have a secure home for her, where she can be restored to her former elegance. This was great news, and we’re forever grateful to them for their support.

But here’s the really exciting bit:

We’ve been working behind the scenes with at St Athan in South Wales, and today we can reveal that XP will definitely be moving to a new home where she can be restored and made available for the public to explore and admire. This is part of an exciting plan for the airfield, with lots of news to come.

Now the hard work REALLY starts. First job is to make a detailed inspection of XP to formulate a plan for her disassembly, We’re making good progress on assembling the necessary manuals and drawings, so we’ve already made a start. St Athan is being hugely supportive and will ultimately play a major role in her disassembly and transport.

Fund raising is under way, and has got off to a seriously good start. Don’t forget that you can support UKHAT – at no cost to you - simply by buying from major online retailers like Amazon and Argos. Sign up at https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/ukhat/. It only takes a minute or so, and you’ll be helping secure XP’s future without it costing you a penny!
