Following last night’s announcement from Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar Ltd., regarding the restoration to flight of a Mosquito, we would like to make clear that this news bears no relation to The People’s Mosquito. The two projects are entirely separate.
We understand the project will be privately funded. The People’s Mosquito remains a not for profit charity project, relying upon public support and funds.
We remain committed to our core vision: to build and fly a UK-based Mosquito for the benefit of the general public, to inform and educate the public and future generations on the Mosquito and its place in history. We will achieve this aim by restoring and returning Mosquito RL249 to the sky, in conjunction with building a valuable web-based Mosquito resource.
Furthermore we remain committed to our motto: ‘To fly; To educate; To remember’. Through flying displays around the country and an ‘open hangar’ policy, with an emphasis on education, we hope to communicate to future generations the importance to the war effort of the Mosquito during World War Two, and the unique design and engineering techniques that went into its production. At the same time we will be honouring and remembering those who designed, built, flew and maintained the type in all its roles and locations.
We look forward to learning more about the BHHH project in time. Meanwhile we wish them all the best with their venture and would be delighted to work together in the future, should the circumstances arise.
Thank you and we hope we can rely on your continued support.
