TECT 2019
Typhoon at Staverton On 26th August, 2017, a large number of guests met at the Jet Age Museum to welcome JAM’s restored Hawker Typhoon cockpit section, towed to the museum on a low trailer from the restoration workshop. Ready to greet the new arrival were veterans “Paddy” Byrne and Derek Lovell, both of 197 Squadron together with Peggy Fisher who had helped to build Typhoons at the Hucclecote factory nearby. Peggy was asked to insert the last rivet in the engine firewall.
Veteran goes back to School!  Derek Lovell was recently invited to visit a primary school in Bristol, attended by a great-great nephew of “Killy” Kilpatrick, to talk about his Typhoon experiences. The children were fascinated and delighted to meet a real veteran pilot and asked many searching questions.
