This De Havilland Mosquito is part of the Milestones of Flight display.
You also can see Owen and his friend taking full advantage of the museum's technology at the lower right.
The knitter/crocheter among us -- that would be Laura -- thought this display was totally cool.
This Halifax was the most interesting thing to me.
In April 1942, it took off from Scotland to participate in an attack on the German battleship Tirpitz, which was in Norway. The Halifax was hit by German fire and made an emergency landing on a frozen lake, but the heat from its burning engine melted the ice, and it sank to the bottom. (The six crew members survived; five escaped to Sweden, but one was captured and became a POW.)
The display has some fascinating historical information and photos.
The plane was extracted from the bottom of the lake specifically to go on display in the museum because curators realized their collection of bombers was lacking. (I am paraphrasing this story in an extreme way, of course, but you can read all about it when you visit the museum.)
I was spending much of my time herding children and didn't take many photos, but I think it's a great museum. We'll go back soon to see the Battle of Britain Hall, I'm sure. This Web site has all kinds of information on the museum's London and Cosford locations.
On our way out, we visited the gift shop. There I found a coaster printed with my mantra for the day.
No, I didn't buy one. But I am glad to have great museums to distract me from the laundry.
