A pair of 1950s fighter aeroplanes were transported to Cotswold Airport two weeks ago via the M50.
Since then, the Blackburn Buccaneers have been sat in a lot in the former RAF Kemble Airfield away from the public.
This has led many to wonder what the plans are for the former military aircraft.
Mike Over, 72, admin for the Buccaneer Aviation Group (BAG), explained why the majestic aircraft had to be transported and when the public will be able feast their eyes on the bombers.
Mr Over said the Buccaneers had to be moved from their former site in Bruntingthorpe, in Leicestershire, after 20 years as the purpose of site was being changed to car storage rather than aviation.
BAG formed in 2011 and they brought the bombers “back to life”. The aeroplanes can perform every function except actually fly – which is not allowed by the Civil Aviation Authority since they are historical complex aircraft.
BAG were able to use the Bruntingthorpe rent free as they had a deal with the owners “on the basis that twice a year that we would run the jets in front of crowds”.
Mr Over said that similar events at their new home in Cotswold Airport are only likely to happen by 2021.
He says transport to the airfield in Kemble on August 21 cost over £34,000.
The 72-year-old admitted the hold up to public viewing was partially down to practical matters of accommodation.
Mr Over said: “We haven’t even got a toilet. What we’ve got to do is make a home for ourselves there – crew rooms, toilets, that sort of stuff.
“All the rest of service stuff, we’ve got, but we haven’t got accommodation and with winter coming, there’s no place for out volunteers to go.
“We have got to get our aircraft up and running and hopefully we will do that by the end of this year.”
