Article about: We still have five of our original 40 scattered about in museums. NONE flying of course so this one truly is the last air worthy one Dan

    Default Janet the Gannet

    My brother in law has been helping to restore the last flying Fairey Gannet
    Torpedo Bomber.

    Today was the unveiling party and I was invited.
    I apologize for the poor pictures as the lighting in the hanger
    was not very good.

    I had seen pictures of it before but seeing it in person was
    something. I was really surprised that it was as big as it was.

    The Last of it's kind....how Superb is it that it's been Saved and Fully Restored to even Flying condition again? Great to see! Thanks for posting it!

    8 props on a single engine! Definitely unusual and for Sure nothing "Fairy" like about it!
