For sale - my latest do-up: A Harrier Jump Jet
Chris Wilson has two rules for buying vintage planes. They must be fast. And they must be flashy. It’s something of an irony then that the restoration business he began 10 years ago is neither. The work can be painstakingly slow, locating authentic spare parts even slower and the hangars of Jet Art Aviation, tucked away a few miles from Selby, often resemble the scrap yard next door. Still, it’s an improvement on their original site on top of a hill overlooking Bradford which was something of a wind tunnel.
