ABOUT

THE DE HAVILLAND MOSQUITO- THE WOODEN WONDER! OLD MOSSIE! 
IT ALMOST WASN'T BUILT, BUT DE HAVILLAND WAS PERSISTENT. HE BELIEVED THAT A LIGHT WEIGHT, FAST PRECISION BOMBER WAS EXACTLY WHAT WAS NEEDED TO HELP TURN AROUND THE AIR WAR AGAINST THE NAZIS. DUE TO THE EXCELLENT STRENGTH TO WEIGHT PROPERTIES OF HIS WOODEN DESIGNS AND BECAUSE RAW MATERIALS WERE SCARCE IN BRITAIN, THE MOSQUITO WAS ALMOST ENTIRELY BUILT OF WOOD. IT WAS THE FASTEST PLANE OF ITS TIME INCORPORATING TWO ROLLS ROYCE MERLIN ENGINES GIVING IT A TOP SPEED OF 430 MPH. DUE TO ITS SPEED, IT HAD NO ARMAMENT! IT WAS SO DIFFICULT TO SHOOT DOWN THAT THE GERMAN LUFTWAFFE PILOTS WERE GIVEN 2 KILLS FOR EVERY MOSQUITO THEY SHOT DOWN. THERE ARE MANY STORIES OF DIFFICULT MISSIONS FLOWN BY HER CREWS. WHAT A GREAT STORY!
