Important announcement

After over thirty years of collecting these V Bomber Cockpits and parts it has been reluctantly decided now is the time for them to find them a new home.

It was always felt that these iconic cockpits should be displayed together as a Cold War Tribute to these great aircraft and that is why we sought to find examples worthy of restoration and display and source the additional parts and equipment in order to make it possible to make their restoration as complete and accurate as possible, it is thought that ambition has been achieved.

We are therefore inviting expressions of interest from organisations and individuals that can demonstrate they have the necessary resources to purchase and display this rare and unique collection of all three V Bombers in one single collection. Some Museums may have one cockpit or even parts of another, it is however believed that this is the only opportunity where substantially complete cockpits of all three types may be acquired together making a readily available tribute to all three types.

It has cost a substantial amount to gather these cockpits and parts and it is clear to see how much individual items command when offered for sale. We would therefore invite indicative offers for these cockpits but they need to be realistic and consider the value of the cockpits and the parts represented here. Items such as Controls, instruments, panels, ejection seats etc all command a significant price when offered individually, this needs to be recognised when considering potential offers.

The ultimate ambition would be to see those who served on them, maintained them or even those who just love them, could purchase them as a tribute to the V Force, its aircraft and crews and then display them together so that others may enjoy them. We were never in a position to have them on public display the aim was only to secure them and gather all that was required to make their restoration and future display a real possibility.

It is hoped that there may be an organisation or an individual who shares the same vision of establishing a tribute to all three V Bomber types will purchase them for display as a tribute to the people who designed, built, maintained and flew these truly iconic aircraft during their service with the Royal Air Force.

Please send expressions of interest to info@v-bombers.org.
