The primary aim of the “Whirlwind Fighter Project” is to reproduce a single example of the Westland Whirlwind Mk 1 twin engined single seater fighter-bomber aircraft.
It is intended that the project will result in a non-airworthy reproduction of the Westland Whirlwind, built to available original plans, with (where possible) original materials. The reproduction will use whatever original structure, parts, including engines, undercarriage and (deactivated/replica) armament as are currently available.
The intention is to produce a reproduction aircraft which is indistinguishable from an aircraft in Squadron service during the Second World War.
