At the aptly named Rotary Farm workshops of Flying Restorations Ltd, an Avro 504K has been meticulously returned to flying condition
At many small aircraft restoration facilities around the UK, dedicated craftsmen are beavering away with projects well hidden from the public eye. Bedfordshirebased Flying Restorations is one example. It has emerged from Skysport Engineering, well-known for restoring machines such as the Hawker Demon among many others. With a drive to maintain authenticity, Skysport has been responsible for producing or restoring parts for countless World War One aeroplane rebuilds, and was therefore an ideal choice for Tom Harris when he was looking to restore an Avro 504K from parts he had sourced.
