Hangar Wheels and Rails Wanted!

Hangar Wheels and Rails Wanted!

22 February 2017

The Hangar frame is now reassembled in its new position, but we are critically short of usable original bottom door wheels and runners. Both were made in cast steel to a specific design (see attached photo and detailed drawings are available from Julian Temple) and are costly to manufacture today. So before we commit to that option, we would be very interested in hearing from anyone who may know of any such surviving parts salvaged from any other Bellman or T.2 type aircraft hangars or possible still held by a steelwork supplier.
