At the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby on 30 July, Tony Agar’s de Havilland Mosquito NFII, HJ711, was rolled out alongside Avro Lancaster VII NX611 Just Jane for the first time since the night fighter was moved to the former bomber base from the Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington in July 2017. On 4 August the pair were put on static display together after the flying programme at the East Kirkby Airshow. Tony and his team have spent the past year assembling and continuing restoration work on the ‘Mossie’, which should be engine-running during 2019.
