It is pretty sad to see the winding up of the AFC. Tim and his team have thrilled and inspired a whole generation of warbird enthusiasts (including me) for many many years. The sale of the collection is none of my business and as the private property of an individual, it had to happen one day.
My question is that of the Hurricane. Was her restoration between a customer and a supplier (ie AFC and Air NZ) or was that a goodwill gesture by a public company? What I am getting at is, is she private property or does Air NZ still have an interest in her?

They're having an 'everything must go' sale, Colin
Ray Mulqueen told me virtually the whole collection will be sold on. That doesn't mean some won't stay at Wanaka though, after all there are a lot of warbird owners based there now, and the NZFPM (independent of the AFC) is expanding!
