de Havilland Museum – London Colney
With two of the three DH Mosquito moved into the new Hangar while work is being done in the old display hall , I took a late decision to visit the Museum , I left Coningsby with a hope of being there for opening time at 10: 30 am and made it by 2 minutes. I paid my entrance fee and took a good look around , It had been many years since my last visit as the Comet 1 was just being stripped of paint, What a great job they have done on her in the Air France livery. I have posted a pictorial record of what I found at the Museum.
The Staff were very helpful on my visit allowing me access to get the right angle for my pictures.
