Hi Gareth--

At the end of an article on the Siskin in (iirc) Aeroplane about twelve years ago, mention was made of "a Siskin wing, retained by the RAF Museum as an example of its type of construction". It was said at the time that that was the sole extant Siskin component.

Would love to see Jim Bates' Siskin project idea come to fruition; the Siskin was the RCAF's first fighter (1927-39), and the sight of one at a Canadian show (or Gennie or Willow Run) would be wonderful for the Canuck contingent...
