Resurrecting a

Forgotten Legend

Restoration to flight of the world’s only combat veteran Hawker Typhoon MkIb, RB396.

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.

Hawker Typhoon RB396 Project Refocus

To see RB396 airborne in a realistic timescale, requires an evolution of the current tactics. We are incredibly positive about the direction in which the project is moving and we look forward to bringing you some more good news in the near future.
