This aircraft now belongs to the Flying Heritage Collection. It is stored with AvSpecs at Ardmore Airport, Auckland, New Zealand pending restoration to fly. It was first recorded there on May 10 2011.

Zac did a nice summary of the Mosquito projects connected with NZ in April

It's about time for me to start taking my camera to work, to marginally increase my slender chances of catching TV959.

Further updates likely to be noted at http://rnzaf.proboards.com/thread/22621 ... ecs?page=3

Hard to believe it's the same machine that used to 'fly' with one wing missing at Lambeth! Saw the 'other' wing at Duxford one time and though sad to see it go, it's wayyyy better off where it is now! Congratulations to all involved.
