The Mosquito is my favorite WWII era aircraft. I didn't know the first version of it was unarmed

Brilliant aeroplane, she was an amazing versatile aircraft, apart from what was described in the video, she was also used by the OSS with a radio operator sitting on a fuel bladder in the fuselage on operations in France before D Day.

Sadly there was some delamination of wood while on operations in the Far East due to the humidity. What's also sad, there are none flying in the UK. Instead of giving billions in overseas aid to Africa dictators, some of that money should be used to rectify the lack of assistance in British historical achievements. Its disgraceful that apart from the Mosquito there are no airworthy Wellingtons, Halifax bombers to name just a few.
