The Wabbit is in great shape, being looked after by our camo, “The Aircraft Restoration Company” at Duxford, experts in Warbird maintenance and restoration. The Wabbit has had a new Engine, a New overhauled prop, New paintwork, New tail feathers, and so on. She is one of Europe’s best flying examples of an Mk4 Harvard.

T6 Harvard Ltd Services:
Our home base:
Peterborough Conington (Formerly RAF GLATTON) has been T6 Harvard Ltd’s primary location since 2021 and is the home of our Declared Training Organisation (DTO 0308). We are very proud to be located at this historic airfield and the former home to many heroes of the greatest generation. When you fly from this airfield, you can’t help but feel the history beneath your wings, knowing that Within 14 months, 729 Airmen were either killed in action, missing in action or prisoners of war flew from this airfield. We still use part of the original runway orientated 28/10, and one can’t help thinking when you look at the mural on the Hangar of those brave souls coming in to land on final runway 28 after a mission.
Fowlmere Airfield – Former RAF Fowlmere is our secondary airfield and one of the Iconic Airfields of the Battle of Britain. We are proud to offer our Battle of Britain experiences from the hallowed turf of the UK’s most important and historical airfields. We believe in the fully immersive aviation history lesson taught above ground in the air. You can certainly read about dog fighting in books, but taking off in an authentic warbird and experiencing the g, the smell of petrol and oil in the same airspace as those heroes that went before us is just magical. Fowlmere is one of those places you can visit and, with some imagination, transport yourself back in time as you stand on that hallowed turf where pilots such as Johnnie Johnson scrambled to their Spitfires!
Our friends and volunteers: All our volunteer staff are dedicated to the above mission statement and the company’s aim. While the directors are kept busy running the company, the pilots and ground crew are left to have fun! (Yes, this is written by a director!) Our Head of Training is a Commercial Airline pilot with many hours on the Harvard and other related aircraft. Our pilots are highly experienced and talented aviators who, in most cases, are airline pilots who give up their valuable time to help out.
Again, the ground crew are all volunteers who gather at Duxford and spend hours cleaning and polishing the Wabbit and volunteering on weekends on event days to deal with customers and sell our merchandise. We have a great team dedicated to the mission. We are always looking for that ‘special volunteer’ who would fit in with our company dynamic and help the team – It could be you!
