What’s included on your Mosquito HJ711 Experience Day?

The only live Mosquito experience available in the world!

We offer special experience days which are usually held mid-week and are a whole day experience and limited to an exclusive party. The day starts at 10.00am with arrivals and a briefing from a crew member/the day's co-ordinator. The day enables you to get a personal experience with HJ711 experiencing her up close for a photographic opportunity, viewing of an engine run and the chance to look into the cockpit from the crew ladder. The party are divided into two groups giving you the opportunity to spend time with the Mosquito and also take in what the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre has to offer. This Mosquito experience is unique and not available anywhere else in the world with a live Mosquito. Learn about Mosquito HJ711, the roles of the Mosquito during WW2 and get a better understanding of the bravery and sacrifice of those that flew for Bomber Command in WW2.

There is a lunch prepared especially for our guests at 12 Noon. You can eat alongside your group providing you with another opportunity talk Mosquitos! Morning tea/coffee, afternoon tea and homemade cake are also included on these days.

Mosquito Experience day

I spent another brilliant day at East Kirkby this time in the company of the Mosquito. It was another day to remember, everyone that I met, from the guides to catering did everything to make the day memorable for us
