Update on the Historical Fairey Gannet Project

As you may know, SodaBlast Sytems  has had the honor of our equipment being used to restore a wonderful piece of aviation history. The Fairey Gannet was an anti-submarine and early warning aircraft in the post World War 2 era. The Fairey Gannet XT752 Organisation has done substantial work to the plane to get it back in the air. They’ve been sending us updates along the way, here are the most recent pictures we’ve received from them.

Undercarriage open, surface prepared for priming.

This primer looks perfect, thanks partially to excellent surface preparation.

The XT752′s wings fold in two places. When the wings are folded, it gives them a very unique Z shape. This is the inside of one of those folds.

This is a 1950′s Aircraft Tug before SodaBlasting…

And after SodaBlasting.

We’re proud to be a part of this historical restoration. Feel free to visit the Fairey Gannet XT752 Organisation website if you’d like to see more updates and details.
