A short time ago, we announced that the People’s Mosquito had just initiated a fund-raiser to help them gather additional funds to both complete the fuselage moulds for their deHavilland Mosquito project along with money for construction of the fuselage itself. Dubbed Operation Jericho 2020, the funding campaign has got off to a significant start, raising £20,000 in the first week. They have added more in the interim, and we thought our readers would enjoy reading their update and consider contributing themselves…

Operation Jericho 2020 continues to soar! In just over 2 weeks your amazing support has generated just over £42,000!

 THANK YOU to all those who have donated to date. We are 17% towards the ultimate goal.

As we shared in last week’s update, this campaign was launched during unprecedented times. Despite these challenges to our daily lives, your incredible support means work on RL249 and the first fuselage moulds to be built in the UK in more than 70 years, continues.
