In April 2015 I was honoured to be able to interview the late Capt. Eric 'Winkle' Brown RN for The People's Mosquito. Capt. Brown, a former Royal Navy fighter pilot and renowned test pilot flew more types of aircraft than any other pilot. In 1944 he was asked to make the first carrier deck landing of a heavy twin-engine aircraft, a de Havilland Mosquito. Here he talks about how and why he did it.

Thanks to Mark Bloomfield for giving his time and kit on this project. Find out more about The People's Mosquito at
