Nice pics. Never been and it's only 10 minutes away from me. Thought you were in the area as it started raining after a bright start. ;)

Thanks, Cluny, this is great to see!

Are any Mosquitos being restored to flight,
or are they all for display only??????

I think there's one in NZ and one in Canada
to be flown in the near future....

I like to do my planning retroactively!

Well, face it......

Kermit Weeks is One Busy Guy!

He's PROMISED to do it, though........

I've always liked that a significant percentage
of Mossies ran Packards :p !

Thanks again, Blizzman!

Made my first visit there a couple of months' back.


Unfortunately it was closed. #-O

Really must arrange to go when it's open. ;)
I'd rather be skiing

Eventually visited a couple of weeks back.
Lucky to have all three Mossies outside.

Great museum and I'm planning a return soon. So much to see.

I'll post some pictures if I can work out how.
