  1. It’s great to hear that the Handley Page Hampden project at Cosford is progressing so well. The project is clearly a labour of love for the technicians and apprentices working on it. They have done a wonderful job on the Bristol Pegasus XVIII radial engine, pictures of the project can be seen at and are well worth a look. Thanks Tony.
