Mosquito running.

By paulbroad  
They did give us a little treat at East Kirkby. The boss came out and started both Merlins on the Mosquito running them for about 5 minutes. A wonderful noise!

Excellent, great to see the engines running without covers - a rare sight. My father worked on the engines and airframes during WW 11 - along with many other marques as he went through North Africa and Europe. I did see a Mosquito flying at RAF Kinloss in the early 90s or thereabouts when I was there, I think most of the Station turned out to see it. It was owned by British Aerospace if I'm not mistaken and crashed not long after. The sound of twin Merlins...........Smile. Chris
