New mossie build

Postby Dougs » Thu Nov 05, 2015 10:20 pm

Wow just found out someone has decided they want a mossie in the uk and have asked Biggin hill to build them one how cool is that :D :D plus the people's mossie we could end up with two of them that's nearly as good as one Vulcan IMO

Is that how you read it a second Mozzie?

I just assumed it was in conjunction with the Peoples Mozzie but admit I've only skimmed the article.

It is definitely a separate project, TPM have been all over Twitter stating that they have nothing to do with the announcement. This is a private ownership deal. Great news though I hope it will be a positive thing for the people's mossie too as they will hopefully get a much needed profile lift from this.

Reading snippets it looks highly likely this could be Glynn Powelll's a/c.

I think there's more chance of the Biggin Hill project than "the peoples mossie " !
