Welcome to the Club P7056 Membership page
We need your support to further fund the build of a museum-quality replica of this special aircraft.
We offer two membership options – annual or life.
Annual membership costs £25.
The annual membership brings the benefit of a copy of the memoirs of Rev. George Wood – a WW2 fighter veteran who flew Whirlwinds and Typhoons during the war.
George’s memoirs are not widely available so this is a unique gift. Please click below to see a short account of George’s early war exploits.
We also include a high-quality member’s badge and a membership card.
Quarterly newsletters will be sent.
Life membership costs £250.
As well as the benefits of the Annual Membership this tier of membership brings the undertaking from the project that their name and a short inscription/dedication to be added onto the underside one of the undercarriage doors of the replica when it nears completion.
Special Membership Gifts
Further note – we offer special, surprise gifts if anyone purchases membership numbers 116, 137 or 263.
These numbers are significant!
