Great news, will be following the restoration with interest. Couldn't be bothered to go through the somewhat 500+ comments on FB but does anyone know the identity of the Mosquito and who's commissioned it?

Well this was the gentleman who was involved with the moulds for Jerry Yagen's Mossie, Glynn Powell:

http://www.mosquitorestoration.com/

No confirmation yet but on his site he lists NZ2308- T43 as a project he has on. I don't know how up to date it is?

:yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: Good news at last.
As for the identity of the aircraft and a timeframe?. The last I heard from Avspecs was that TV959 was starting to come together this year. Hope to see that one in an advanced state early next year :wink: I think that one isn't due to be finished before 2017.
Could be Glyn Powell's T43 but it might also be PZ474 which was sold by Platinum, apparently to Avspecs?

It looks like we're going to be getting some real gems flying in the next few years: the Shackleton, Just Jane and now a Mosquito, to name but a few. This is just what the industry will need with the dwindling RAF support to airshows; I'm personally drooling of the prospect of a Mozzie at Old Warden :drool:
