Spitfire Update 5.11.19

Parnall Aircraft Company

The black and white picture above shows the next step in the wing construction. This will be the attachment of the leading edge skins. The original Parnall Aircraft Company manufactured these sub contract during the war.

This week the propellor hub and engine mount tubes have been decorroded ready for inspection . The engine as seen in the workshop weighs approx 1/2 tonne so the frame has got to be as per the original.


Finally, David’s jelly juggling from last week has produced a remarkable front windscreen assembly, all from about 6 photos. (Images © Parnall Aircraft Company Ltd)
