The Vampire has started to look like an aeroplane!
When she arrived at St Athan in September, she was little more than a few large components and a whole lot of boxes of bits. Now, thanks to the expertise of Gary Spoors and his team, she's beginning to look like the exploded view you might find in the centre pages of The Eagle comic.
It's often said that, when a restoration project begins to look complete, you're about half way there. Well, XE956 is a long way from even that milestone, so there's a very long road ahead, but this first glimpse of her as a real aircraft is incredibly exciting.
