THE de Havilland Heritage Centre, on the Salisbury Hall site, is one of the only places in the world - if not the only - where you can still see a series one Comet.

A huge restoration project at the London Colney museum is currently in progress to try and reform the aircraft, among many others, to its once former glory.

The centre is based outside of Hatfield due to the prototype Mosquito being designed and built (and still remains) at the hall.

A self-funded site, it relies on the hard work of its dedicated volunteers and encourages visitors to touch and in some cases even get inside the cockpit of the de Havilland airplanes - including the famous Tiger Moth and the Mosquito.

In order for the centre to keep it going it's vital they receive further funding and more volunteers.
