Hawker Tempest Mk.V JN768


In circa 1980 Ted Sinclair, Norfolk UK, purchased two Tempest front fuselages from a car scrapyard - in the Bristol area. The Tempests had still their front windscreens. The RAF serials are not known, but on one fuselage there was a number of 'Doodlebug' V1 kills painted.

The photo shows one of the cockpits as found.

On 13 March 2014 one of the cockpits was registered to Richard Grace. (See link below to the UK Civil Aviation Authority.)
