MOSQUITO MOVED TO EAST KIRKBY

PLANS to move Tony Agar’s de Havilland Mosquito NFII HJ711 from the Yorkshire Air Museum (YAM) at Elvington (see News, Aeroplane August 2017) have been brought forward by several months. The machine was dismantled for transportation to the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre (LAHC) at East Kirkby during the weekend of 29-30 July. Experts from the de Havilland Aircraft Museum, the LAHC and a group of YAM volunteers ensured that the disassembly of this precious aeroplane went smoothly.

Loading of Mosquito NFII HJ711 begins at Elvington on 30 July.
