Mosquito Fighter Bomber

de Havilland Mosquito Flies Again

In Aviation by Steve Sliwa

The last time a de Havilland Mosquito flew was in 1996 when the last surviving example crashed at the Barton Air Show in in England.  Now an eight year restoration project culminated with the first flights of what is now the world’s only flyable de Havilland Mosquito fighter bomber.  The aircraft that was used as the basis for the project was stored outside and not much could be reused.  So new molds and parts were computer fabricated in wood (like the original).  This means it is likely that other models could be built.  Here are some videos from the first flights.
