Mosquito to the sky.......

Post by andygolfer » Fri May 13, 2016 5:12 pm

from today's newsletter from the Vulcan Trust:

We are delighted to confirm that ‘The People’s Mosquito’ registered charity and the Vulcan to the Sky Trust have jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding to launch a new funding drive for the restoration programme that aims to have a De Havilland Mosquito flying in the UK within a matter of years.

This is another crucial step towards ensuring we utilise the skills and knowledge built through the Vulcan XH558 programme by the Vulcan to the Sky Trust to benefit the historic aviation community.


great news!

but being old and grey I like a bit of the military stuff too (especially the older ones)!

Saying that, what is the score with the Beaufighter that was being restored at IWM Duxford ?

I think Pen Pusher has the inside track on that. As far as I know its still there but progress is slow.
In this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.
