John Romaine - the 2012 Award Winner!

The Preservationist of the Year award for 2012 goes to John Romaine for his collection of heritage aircraft restored painstakingly at Duxford. In particular the award marks the restoration to factory condition of Mk1 Spitfire P9374. Restored from remnants originally recovered from a Calais beach, the aircraft took to the air again in September 2011 and is now the oldest flying example.








The Transport Trust makes loans to groups, associations and individuals at advantageous rates for the restoration of artefacts - whether mobile or part of the infrastructure.  Applications must be supported by a simple business plan which demonstrates the financial viability of the project. A sample business plan is available on request from the Treasurer.


The Trust does occasionaly make Awards for schemes which further the preservation movement. Again if you wish further information please contact the Treasurer.
