de Havilland Gallery

 

 

All of the images in this gallery were taken at the de Havilland Aircraft Heritage Centre.  This is one of the oldest and only aviation museum in the UK dedicated to one aircraft manufacturer.

de Havilland can trace its history back to the early days of aviation through to the birth of the jet age.  During this time de Havilland produced many iconic aircraft including: the Tiger Moth, Mosquito, Vampire, and the Comet which was the first ever jet airliner.

The museum is located at Salisbury Hall in Hertfordshire, which was the site chosen by de Havilland to set up a secret development facility during the second world war.  It was here where the Mosquito was designed and the prototype built.

Now on display is a selection of de Havilland aircraft, engines and memorabilia. The star attraction is the prototype Mosquito, which is the only original WWII prototype still surviving today.  This collection offers the visitor unique "hands on experience" and the opportunity to follow the progress of the aircraft which are under going restoration.
