deHavilland Mosquito

de Havilland's Mosquito is a legendary aeroplane. Conceived in 1938 as a high-speed bomber, its adaptability saw it used as a nightfighter, bomber, photo-reconnaissance aircraft, high-speed courier, target marker, anti-shipping strike aircraft and target tug.

deHavilland Mosquito

Built mainly from wood, using experience gained during the manufacture of the Albatross airliner, the Mosquito was a masterpiece. It was fast, rugged, capable of taking enormous punishment and yet was easily repaired, and its low loss rate confirmed predictions that speed, not firepower, was the best defense.

This book tells the story of the aircraft's design and development, its operational use with both the RAF and USAAF, and its production in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Appendices list the many variants, production totals, nightfighter kills and much more.

Book is fully illustrated throughout with many rare and previously unpublished photographs. DeHavilland Mosquito is a fine record of a superb aeroplane.


deHavilland Mosquito book: 192 pgs, softbound, 8.5 x 11, over 200 photos & illustrations, appendices, Index.
