The People’s Mosquito has a simple vision: to not only return a de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito FB.VI to the skies above Britain, but, for the first time in more than 75 years, build this iconic aircraft in the UK.
As a not-for-profit restoration project and registered charity, our aim is to inform and educate the public and future generations on the Mosquito and its place in history.
The Mosquito was an exemplar of British 1940’s aeronautical engineering. A truly groundbreaking aircraft in so many ways, it was built by a network of often small and medium sized enterprises up and down the UK, all coming together to build what was then the world’s fastest production aircraft. More than any other aircraft of the wartime era, ‘The Mossie’ or ‘Wooden Wonder’ as she was affectionately known, was the peoples’ aircraft.
Our motto is: ‘To fly; To educate; To remember’. Through flying displays around the country and an ‘open hangar’ policy, with an emphasis on education, we aim 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 hope you enjoy our promotional video, featuring colour footage of Mosquitoes in action in 1944. You can watch the full (9 mins) extended version of the video here.
We have now centralised comments on the Say Hello page. Many thanks.
