New home for old planes

HISTORIC aircraft have found a new home as the relocated Boscombe Down Aviation Collection nears completion.

The last aircraft to be moved from the collection’s former base at Boscombe Down to its new hangar at Old Sarum was a Bristol Sycamore XJ380.

The helicopter had fallen into disrepair after being decommissioned and was restored by the collection’s team of volunteers.

They plan to repaint the aircraft so it can be admired by visitors to the museum.

A Hunter F6 has also been reassembled at the hangar and is standing on its own two wheels for the first time in five years.
