    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Raise money so that the building will be ongoing.

    This aircraft no longer exists but is was one of the most important steps in the history of the RAF and if things had been different it would have been the mainstay of Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain rather than the Spitfire.

    The project is ongoing over the next few years as this is being built at no charge apart from material by the Aircraft Restoration Group in Yorkshire.

    It will go towards building the fuselage and wings.

      Thaks to everyone who donated. Your money will go towards the cockpit section as in the picture also towards the front section and will help put this aircraft back on the map.

    I am the secretary for the project and have had an interest in Aviation since I was a child. The opportunity to be part of this project was one I could not miss as the Whirlwind has been one of my favourite aircraft.
