Douglas Task Master Aircraft Tractor

This Douglas Taskmaster Aircraft Tractor has been owned by its current owner Jim Kerr for around five years. When he bought the aircraft tractor it was in terrible state, a "wreck". Since then he has carefully rebuilt, renovated and restored the tractor: including the engine, body and cosmetic work.

The Douglas Taskmaster's original purpose was to taxi aircraft from hangers to the airfield; and according to the owner pulled Spitfires, Hurricanes and Lancaster's.
