Weʼre raising £40,000 to pay for the historic aircraft Vampire WZ507 next year’s annual service and repaint to make it available for the public to enjoy at airshows.

Don't have time to donate right now?

Story

Our aim is to preserve the historic aircraft Vampire WZ507 for the public to enjoy at airshows and other events, including education and STEM activities.

In 1980 WZ507 became the first ex-RAF jet fighter to be put onto the UK civilian register (as G-VTII), after being restored to full flying condition by the SAS. This paved the way for other historic ex-military aircraft to find a new life after retirement to grace the skies once again for everyone to enjoy.

Over the last few years a large number of heritage jets disappeared from the British skies, either sold abroad or grounded forever - 2 Meteors, 1 Vulcan, 2 Vampires, 2 Venoms, 1 Canberra, all civillian Hunters, a number of Jet Provosts and Strikemasters are just a few examples. It is increasingly difficult to keep this last airworthy Vampire T11 in Europe flying but you can still help.

    Many thanks to Everyone for your support! Without help it would be impossible to keep this unique historic aircraft flying for the public to enjoy. More updates are coming soon. We are hoping to schedule an open day for the supporters in the near future.
