De Havilland Aircraft Museum
The De Havilland Aircraft Museum is a museum that is completely run by volunteers. At a certain time, it was known as the de Havilland Aircraft Heritage Centre, located in London Colney, Hertfordshire, England. The collection and exhibits you will find include restorations as well as prototype shops for such aircraft, as the de Havilland Vampire which is the 3rd jet aircraft that is still in operation in the entire world as well as the de Havilland Mosquito.
Examples of aircraft on display, including those that are being restored, include:
* DH53 Hummingbird: this one is owned privately and has its own original empennage and wings. DH Technical School constructed its fuselage
* Cierva C.24 was placed here from the Science Museum as a long term loan

* DH98 Mosquito I prototype on display in Walter Goldsmith Hangar. It has been completely restored externally

You and your children will love this historic aircraft exhibit, as well restoration workshop and all the hard work that goes into recreating these machines.
