North Weald Aerofair 2003

16th-18th May

ST Aviation pulled out all the stops to have their new J400 ready for the show at North Weald.

Murray Flint has done his usual high standard of finishing and the paint had only just hardened in time for the show!

Unfortunately the weather was rain and drizzle with some dry spells which kept the big crowds away and a lot of the airborne visitors.

Among other jobs left to complete the plane, left and right panel mounted throttles and a slot left for a Garmin 295 colour moving map GPS.

The Spitfire MK26 fuselage was on display, to be powered by the new Jabiru 8cylinder 180hp engine!

This is how the fuselage part of the kit comes from the manufacturer
