The Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group (HTPG) exists to raise the funds required to oversee the rebuild and return to flight of the sole surviving combat veteran Hawker Typhoon MkIb, RB396.
The Typhoon; a powerful, potent ground attack aircraft that redressed the balance in mainland Europe during World War Two (WWII), has been lost from the collective memory of our national, industrial and engineering heritage. RB396 will symbolise this heritage, educate the public and become a permanent memorial to all the crews, of all nationalities, that made the ultimate sacrifice operating the Typhoon.
It’s time to remind the world.
On the 3rd Oct 2020 at the Imperial War Museum Duxford our gala promises to be a spectacular event and will feature a sunset air display, live music, special guests and grand auction!Find out more
The physical rebuild is underway, with our partners the Aircraft Restoration Company and Airframe Assemblies. It began in the summer of 2019 after three years of fundraising and after the successful completion of a Crowdfunder Campaign in May 2019.
This project is run entirely by volunteers and has been funded to date exclusively by kind donations from our Supporters’ Club and members of the public. We need help to ensure we raise the funds required, within our planned timescale.More about the project
