A low beat-up down the runway at Greenham Common during the 1976 Air Tattoo International by the WW2 Mosquito trainer operated by the Hawker Siddeley (later British Aerospace) Flying Club. At the time it was the last airworthy Mosquito in the world. Alas it was destroyed later in a fatal crash. There are some pirated copies of this picture on the internet but this is the real McCoy and I’ve got the original negative.
