Jet Age Museum Volunteers are building a Hawker Typhoon Cockpit section from salvage parts and new components they are fabricating themselves.


Once this two year project is complete it will become a exhibit in the museum as a testimony to this iconic aircraft and the Gloucestershire people who built them.

Selected as a replacement for the Hurricane these aircraft were armed with four 20mm Hispano cannon, eight RP3 rockets or two 1000lb. bombs. Powered by a Napier Sabre H 24 engine providing 2000 bhp, they could achieve in excess of 400 mph in level flight.

Over 3300 of these superb aircraft were built by the men and women of Gloster Aircraft Company, at Hucclecote, Stoke Orchards and other shadow factories.
