Whitley Project was set up in autumn 2000 to rebuild an Armstrong
Whitworth Whitley for museum display. The Armstrong Whitworth Whitley was
a very important aircraft and it is a great shame there are no survivors.
We have a large number of
drawings and original parts and in order to keep the rebuilt aircraft as
original as possible, we are actively involved in
salvaging parts from aircraft lost in the war.
Current work centres around the construction of a plywood mockup of a Whitley fuselage to check the profiles of the formers.
