de Havilland Mosquito print by the renowned Ken Brookes awarded to The People’s Mosquito

TPM lapel


While at the airshow in Duxford this year Ken Brookes and Stuart Bourne (Quality Aviation Photos International), both famed professional aviation photographers, gift this copyrighted photo to  The People’s Mosquito to honor the effort to build a flying de Havilland Mosquito for the public trust. Brookes obtained this particular image at the 1962 Farnborough airshow. This specific Mossie was tail number TW117 at the time — a T Mk.III — and now resides in the Norwegian Aviation Museum (Norsk Luftfartsmuseum), in Bodø, restored as an FB Mk.VI variant though labeled as a T Mk.III.

Watch for a post by The People’s Mosquito publishing this photo as well as a possible path to obtaining this nearly mystical image 🙂

Wait…there are several well made items available now! TPM — The People’s Mosquito — is the unique project to build a new de Havilland Mosquito from the original molds up. TPM has been marked by the regular building of momentum and donations (the site has this web button for donations) as well as newly released pleasing and enjoyable fund-raising merchandise.
