FHC is proud to announce its newest artifact, the DH98 Mosquito! After six years of restoration it is scheduled to ship to its new home here at the Flying Heritage Collection next year! Upon arrival, Mossie will get a new paint scheme and be unveiled to the public for the first time. Stay tuned for event date!  

Big News: On September 25th the Mosquito took to the skies for its first flight test. We are happy to report, it went great! Be sure to check out the video on our Facebook page.

Fun Fact: "Mossie" is a dual control trainer version that was based on the Mk. II fighter design. The T.III version was first flown on 30 January 1942 and early examples were converted from Mk. II productions. 

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for photos, videos, and other fun details about this aircraft!

The venerable F-105 was the largest single-seat, single-engine fighter ever built.  Though designed for nuclear conflict with the Soviets in the 1950s, the F-105 proved its worth in the fighter-bomber role over Vietnam a decade later.   While effective in combat, nearly half of the 833 F-105s built were lost during actions in the dangerous skies over Southeast Asia.

Pilots lovingly dubbed the Republic F-105 Thunderchief, “the Thud.”  The name was inspired by Chief Thunderthud, a character from the Howdy Doody TV series.
