Nina Plumbe has written to appeal for information about any mark II airborne lifeboats that may be in existence. If you have any information, please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll pass the message on.
Here’s what she says:
‘We are about to start a huge restore on an airborne lifeboat mark II, which is 30ft long. While we are aware of several mark Is (24ft long) we cannot find a single mark II.
‘The photos sho how she looked in the 1960s and how she is today.
‘Is ours the only one surviving? We know that they were built in a boatyard in Wales as well as in a boatyard at Potter Heigham on the Norfolk Broads.
‘Thanks for your help, Nina Plumbe’
Nina and her friends are setting up a trust to care for the airborne lifeboat.
