Was lucky enough to speak to the project head for both the Mosquito and Lancaster projects, and learnt a little Windsor history at the same time. These folks have put in so very much work, it is inspiring to see what they have done!

A mosquito built from scratch and the lancaster resoration are the best reasons to go. Get up and personal with the aircraft . The guided tours are excellent.
