AL246 Martlet Yeovilton

Under preservation with the Fleet Air Arm Museum. AL246 is a Martlet 1 otherwise known as a Grumman F4F Wildcat of 1940's vintage. These particular combat aircraft were acquired from a French order of 81 machines that could not be delivered to them. She has been under a two year restoration and now has a "new" paint job (different to this picture).
