Nx611 now has her 4 airworthy engines, so hopefully they will soon be starting work to make her airworthy :D

Report from East Kirby suggests that it will take 14mths to get JJ back in the air.

They must have changed their minds, I tweeted Andrew phantom asking him about it and he said 18 months. They have a lot to do, I wonder if it will stop the taxi runs for long?

Of course, by SAYING 18 months, they
might just be covering their collective

Fred Panton told us it would take 18 mths 3 years ago! but I'm guessing they mean from when the restoration is starts in earnest. Now they have the 4th engine I suspect things will move along but I personally think even 18 mths could be optimistic.
