As many of you was interested in hearing of the guy who brought the Polish fighter jet I saw while looking at the local paper today that it turns out he is putting it outside his Curry House which he owns in Turners Hill which is next to LGW and only a few miles away from me haha. And to get it there he is going to fly it there!

Currently the aircraft is at Manston and in a couple months he will fly it here. It says that he is being taught how to fly it. Once the aircraft arrives he will as I said put it outside his curry house and will let people sit in the plane etc. And in addition it says he is to create a new dish called the Iskra curry after the aircraft (TS-11 Iskra).

So if any of you end up at LGW in the future remember that near the airport there is a resturant with a fighter jet you can sit in.  I wish the best of luck to him, and a safe flight!

Not a bad way to get around. Congrats to the new owner of the TS-11. Along with the privately owned Hawker Hunters it would be a great display at any local airshow.

Yes definitely! Would be loud, but that is the best!

I wonder if he is going to fly it into LGW?

Last I read it was not airworthy, the reason it was so cheap. You ain't gonna restore it just for one flight.

There are so many things that don't make sense in that article I don't know where to start.

If he can manage it, good luck to him!

Haha I guess so, bet she would have rather have had the Porsche they saved up for instead! But you can't blame him though, he made the right choice.

We are currently dismantling the L-29 we bought as unairworthy for road transport to our new hangar at a different airfield, though it looks quite ok inside and can probably made airworthy again (pending paperwork and registration issues, from a technical point of view it is lot of work, but it is doable). The aircraft has been sitting outside for years since the original owner went bankrupt and just walked away. We basically bought it from the airport for the equivalent of several years worth of accumulated parking fees.
The biggest pain is the remaining wingspan after removing the outer wing panels. With 3.7 meters we are probably going to need to hire a trucking company for oversize freight. In any case, it is only for about 10 km.

The very best of luck to you! If it does manage to work out I hope to see some great shots of it flying on the A.net database.
