Tiffy update: build underway and schools are painting

Excitement is building for this incredible S.T.E.M. project and the teams have been working hard on it. The design team have done a fantastic job of digging out the archives of the original plans to give us the most accurate model ever. Parts are now being built and assembled from these drawings, including two large wing sections, and parts of the hull are almost complete. Some of the local schools are helping to paint large sections of the plane in their DT lessons and last week we sent local photographer Russell Emm down to Broad Chalke Primary School to see how they were getting on, where he found the pupils hard at work on one of the wings and in charge of a whole lot of paint!

We would like to thank all the children involved for their hard work, and we look forward to seeing the finished article when it arrives at the Festival at the beginning of June.
