Topic: Mosquito Restoration Project...


Since the "Germany lost the war in 1940" thread has been converted into a Mosquito appreciation page I figured I would start a new thread appropriate to the discussion.

Here is a Facebook page run by Avspecs dedicated to the reconstruction of Mosquito KA-114 a Fighter/Bomber version, I assume this is the one bound for the USA...

It includes a lot of videos and pictures of the progress made.

Just met a chap at work.
he's 102 years old and was a navigator on Mosquitos.
He flew night intruder missions and after one mission, they had shot down a nightfighter over Berlin and had to make it back on one engine before crash landing and both walking away from the wreck.
His pilot and him got the DFC for that mission.

In this area where I live now, there are quite a few WW2 ex RAF types, mostly aircrew. One chap flew Mk18 Spits, Mosquito's as a Master Pilot (Same rank as WO1) then got his commission and flew the first jets coming into service. The war ended just as he finished his training. Another chap flew Lancasters, I haven't seen him around for a long time, so I guess he has passed away.

The Mosquito was without a doubt one of the most amazing aircraft of WW2.

The Mosquito could carry a 4000lb cookie all the way to Berlin.
One two manned, two engined aircraft, made of wood with no defensive armament.

Well worth a visit.
The Mosquito is an aircraft that was the original Multi Role Combat Aircraft.
