Lecture: The People’s Mosquito (in person)

Date: 1st June 2021

Time: 7pm

Location: The Barn

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.

Join David Smith to find out all about this exciting project and about the Mosquito’s place in history.

The Mosquito was an exemplar of British 1940’s aeronautical engineering. A truly ground breaking 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.

The charity’s motto is: ‘To fly; To educate; To remember’. Through flying displays around the country and an ‘open hangar’ policy, with an emphasis on education, they 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.

This in person, socially distanced talk will take place in the Main Barn in accordance with the latest government guidelines at the time. We will confirm these closer to the event. There is the option to join this talk online over zoom, please purchase an online ticket here.

£5 per person
