De Havilland Vampire trainer A79-637 continues to make progress back to Flight status under a team of engineers led by Terry Wilson. Fuselage painting work is now complete and our recent work has concentrated on the wing fuel cells, cell bays, and associated fuel piping. When the wing tank work is complete, the wings will be fitted. Work has also started on the engine fuel hoses and also with our test and proof rig so that we will be able to check and calibrate the engine burners which are fitted to the Goblin jet engine.
