The remains of Mosquito NF.36 RL249 have been acquired by the People's Mosquito group - who are dedicated to restoring and flying a Mosquito within the UK. Many parts will be manufactured new but parts will be sourced from other areas as much as possible.
Around 20 potential airframes of Spitfire Mk.XIVs have been found in Burma. Prime Minister David Cameron has secured an agreement to excavate the fighters and return them to Britain. With the large number of airframes the potential airworthy examples could greatly increase the current UK population.
