Mosquito Veterans Signing Event June 2015



The museums signing event turned out perfect for both the Mosquito veterans and visitors, The conditions inside the main hangar were just about perfect for our distinguished guests who chatted with everyone and signed our new Mosquito print and also other books and prints brought along by enthusiasts on the day. Our thanks also go to the museum volunteers who without their support this event would not have been so successful. We wish to thank those who brought along the veterans to the museum and Philip West who attended the event. A print of the new painting by Philip called the  ‘de Havilland Mosquito The Wooden Wonder’  is available through our Aeroshop.

Most of all our thanks go to the following people who made this day possible
