Hawker Demon, G-BTVE, K8203, Old Warden, Shuttleworth, 2013

Demon G-BTVE took to the air after an 18 year restoration on 23rd June 2009. Painted in the colours of 64 Squadron RAF and with serial number K8203, the Demon is the sole remaining flying example of this important interwar type. One of a batch of 37 built by Boulton Paul Aircraft in Wolverhampton, K8203 was originally assigned to 64 Squadron at Church Fenton before passing to No. 9 Maintenance Unit at RAF Cosford and then to No. 9 Air Observers School (later renamed No. 9 Bombing & Gunnery School) at RAF Penrhos.
K8203 was struck off charge in September 1940 but served on as a ground training aid. The aircraft was finally retired properly in 1943. Acquired first by Guy Black and then Demon Displays the Demon was restored by Skysport Engineering and is now based at Old Warden in the United Kingdom.

Caution: This item is an adult collectible designed for use by persons 14 years of age and older.
