Welcome

This website is dedicated to the restoration of Hawker Typhoon RB396,
a genuine No.121 Wing; No.83 Group; Second Tactical Air Force combat veteran.

RB (as she is affectionately know by the team) is owned by a registered charity, the Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group (1167143), who will be overseeing the restoration with the intention of returning the aircraft to flight powered by a Napier Sabre engine – something that hasn’t been seen, or heard, for nearly 70 years.

Once complete, this legendary aircraft will be the only airworthy Hawker Typhoon in the world, and the only genuine combat veteran in existence. She will serve as a centre piece for a Heritage Centre, established with the intention of preserving the history and educating the public with regard to this iconic and forgotten aircraft.

We need your help as the aircraft will be funded entirely by public support, donations and sponsorship with the goal of being airworthy to coincide with the 80th Anniversary of D-Day planned for 2024. A Supporters’ Club has been established, along with a range of merchandise and there are many avenues by which money can be donated and you can help.
