UPDATED. Funds are urgently needed to dismantle and transport F3 XR713 from Leuchars to Bruntingthorpe.

XR713 2012

MARCH 23rd UPDATE.

The team from the LPG visited RAF Leuchars last week to dismantle F3 XR713. It was an enormous undertaking in 4 and a half days, and  we are nearly there. As it had been assembled for 51 years it was reluctant to come apart. The bolts are all out of the fuselage and fin and the cockpit is off, but needs removal of PRC and some persuasion to complete the job, We intend to visit 11/12th April to finish the job.
Because of the extra trip we need another £1000 for this.
You were magnificent last time, and please donate what you can to complete the job.

Or send cheques payable to LPG to:
Chris Norris,
12 Newark Rd,
Coddington,
Newark,
Notts. NG24 2QF.


RAF Wattisham Q-SHED - Rebuild complete but funds still needed


They protected you now you protect them!

The re-erection of the RAF Wattisham QRA Shed is 100% complete thanks to the generosity of our supporters. All our donor’s names are recorded on our Contributors Board in the hangar.

However the building still has to be fitted out with storyboards telling the Cold War and Lightning histories. Added to this we have ongoing challenge to keep both Lightnings in fully functional condition.

We have therefore decided to invite existing contributors to top up their donation at any time and at the same time invite new donors to the scheme whereby we will commission an new name, to be permanently displayed in the hangar, for a minimum of a £50 donation. You will be in good company as the likes of Wg Cdr Roland “Bee” Beamont are recorded. The specified name can be of your choice and we have a number of names “In memory of” which is a fitting way to remember a loved one or colleague.

If you have the time, then please attend one of the Open Days. If you wish to make a donation, any amount, large or small is most welcome. If you wish to pay by cheque please make payment to “LPG” enclosing a SAE and send to:

Richard Norris, 2 Spring Hill, Little Staughton, Beds, MK44 2BS (tel: 01234 378827). An SAE would be appreciated.
