Hangared in North Somerset

Owned and flown from 2001 until a professional engine overhaul in 2009 (recon crank, small ends, etc - have invoice listing the work). Permit and insurance expired while engine was in workshop, then life took over and they were never renewed - so not flown since (but engine looked after, runs lovely). From at least 2001 (probably much longer) the aircraft has been hangared with the wing rigged, off the trike, in a dry hangar out of direct sunlight. The wing looks totally sound and in great condition with just a few patches for hangar rash. If you would like to view the aircraft and/or run the engine then please phone to arrange a visit before the auction closes.

Also have a few bits and bobs that I can offer free of charge to the successful bidder - eg. flying suits and helmets with integral Comtronics “ULTRA-COM” intercom and airband transceiver interface (works fine but one earpiece coming away at helmet, should be fixable).

All the above photos, except Spamfield pic, were taken in October 2016. A lovely XL, very sad to be saying goodbye.
