A team of engineers has been working to restore the Dakota since December 2001 when the Yorkshire Air Museum acquired the aeroplane.
When I first obtained this aircraft by a chance telephone call to Coventry in 2001, I could not have imagined the work which our dedicated team of aircraft engineers would have to put in to get it to this high standard of restoration – it is truly a great credit to them, and I especially congratulate the project leader George Astley MBE for his determination and skill.”
