Mosquito

This week’s theme features Scotland’s National Museum of Flight once more. It is home to a wonderful collection of aircraft, both military and civilian. The star attraction of the museum is undoubtably Concorde G-BOAA, but there’s plenty of other aircraft to see and enjoy too, and we certainly didn’t get around all four hangars plus all of the outside exhibits in a single day.

At the back of Hangar 2, just by the door that leads out to the Vulcan static display, there’s this striking empty wall. During the Second World War, East Fortune Airfield served a number of roles, including being home to de Havilland Mosquitos of Coastal Command.
