      Hi.

      As I mentioned this in my introduction forum post here, the open-top tour bus that was used by Paul McCartney and Wings (plus family members, including Mary and Stella), during their 1972 Tour of Europe, has returned to the UK after over 20 years in Tenerife, and is being restored by its current owner.

      The owner wants to have it fully restored in time for 2022 and the 50th anniverary of the tour.

      Per my first post, I've written two blog posts (1) (2) about the current happenings with the bus, as well as its now 67 year history.

      The owner has set-up a web site for the bus, so fans of Macca, Wings and vintage buses can follow what is happening with its restoration.

      See  http://www.1972wingstourbus.com/

        Kind of a cool update this.

        A 3D model of the bus in its full glory is now online. Using your mouse, both buttons (incl together) and your wheel, you can navigate your way around it and go inside it.

        I believe some further details on the inside and upper deck are yet to be added, but the external view seems to be complete.

          The 1972 Wings Tour Bus is back moving under its own power
