It is planned that each piece of aircraft will in turn be transferred to the Bluebird Project’s workshop in Newcastle where it will undergo a unique process involving softening, straightening, stretching and reforming.
Bluebird Project team are highly skilled at reforming extremely crumpled, broken and often unidentifiable lumps of wreckage, back into usable components. This means that the rebuilt Barracuda will contain very high amounts of original material.
The Bluebird Project team relies on a workforce of highly skilled volunteers however additional funding of some £60,000 is required to complete the project.
The Bluebird Project team have now carried out an assessment of much of the Barracuda tail section and feel confident that some work can now begin.
