After getting a few hours of sleep in Normandy, Ian took off to the Somme to meet with our friend Pierre Ben and view his museum collection. Many followers will note that Pierre is the gentleman who provided the Typhoon wing spar fittings on loan to us, so they can be reverse engineered (an ongoing aspect of the project).
Arjan and Ian were amazed when they walked into the museum. It is packed with some of the most impressive display’s I’ve seen at any museum, all carefully preserved and displayed with a respectful history of the pilot and incident. This is a museum not to be missed if you are in the area: Website link below
While there, Pierre also gave the project a few more parts to work with, so we will detail this in a future post!
