HAWKER Hurricane I P2902/G-ROBT made a successful first test flight from Elmsett Airfield in Suffolk on 19 June with Stu Goldspink at the controls, following a complete rebuild by Hawker Restorations. The company, which recently moved to Elmsett from Milden (see News, Aeroplane June 2017), has now completed the restoration of a grand total of 10 Hurricanes, with more to come. The fighter is owned by Anglia Aircraft Restorations, and will join its collection at Duxford alongside Fury ISS G-CBEL, Spitfire XIV MV293/ G-SPIT and TF-51D 44-84847/G-TFSI Miss Velma.
