In December our Chairman and MD, John Lilley and Nick Horrox, our Director of Communications spoke to Jo Thoenes of BFBS Brize Norton (@bfbsbrize) about the project and the history of the Mosquito. The links to Oxfordshire started with the very first operational sortie by a Mosquito in 1941, from RAF Benson. Post-war, RAF Brize Norton was used by No. 204 Advanced Flying School when it moved down from RAF Driffield with a mix of T.III and FB.VI Mosquitoes. Their role was to train crews for twin-engined aircraft, particularly the Mosquito.
