This week, a set of photos from our first visit to the de Havilland Aircraft Museum since their new display hall was erected. Good to see so many of the airframes now under cover and protected from the British weather.

This week we take a look at one of the (in our opinion) most stunning preserved Mosquitos, TA634, which resides at the de Havilland Aircraft Museum at Salisbury Hall.Restored in its original bomber configuration, it looks like it has flown many sorties thanks to its used look finish to its RAF paintwork.

To mark the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War, we present a set of photos of one of the aircraft that served during the conflict, Westland Wessex XP142 ‘Humphrey’
Still showing the damage caused by Argentinian Dagger jets, Humphrey is back on display at the Fleet Air Arm Museum at RNAS Yeovilton.
