Recorded Lecture: Returning a UK-built Mosquito to our Skies by David Smith & Alan Pickford

Originally presented on Tuesday 16th November 2021 to the RAeS Boscombe Down Branch.

The second part of the Boscombe Down Branch’s ‘Mosquito Month’ (commemorating the 80th anniversary of the De Havilland Mosquito entering RAF service), this online lecture looks at the history of the ‘Wooden Wonder’ and the ongoing project to return a Mosquito to UK skies.

After an introduction, the presentation will cover the genesis of the DH.98 Mosquito, focusing on the manufacturing method and the materials used, with a short piece on the engines. It will then conclude with a little more information about the charity ‘The People’s Mosquito’, the ongoing restoration project and an update on progress to date.
