The De Havilland Mosquito

Postby koimaster » December 20th 2016, 10:48am

The De Havilland Mosquito remains perhaps the most iconic British light bomber of the Second World War. Made almost entirely from wood, it was the fastest aircraft in the world at the time. The Mosquito was capable of a maximum speed of 668 kph (415 mph) ― an achievement that enabled it to perform daring raids during the war.


As well as being incredibly fast, the aircraft played so many roles within the RAF. It served as a medium-altitude daytime tactical bomber, high-altitude night bomber, pathfinder, day or night fighter, fighter-bomber, intruder, maritime strike aircraft, and fast photo-reconnaissance aircraft.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
