New Zealand Mosquito rebuild pictures

The worlds only flying Mosquito.



I’ve always loved the Mosquito and with a top speed of 408 mph, a 37,000 foot ceiling and the ability to carry a bomb load of up to 4000 lbs it was probably the most versatile aircraft of WWII.  The heavy bombers always get the credit for bombing Germany into submission but in my opinion allied air power would’ve been much more effective if they had scrapped the idea of high altitude bombing and instead focused of using fighter bombers like the Mosquito.  This opinion is backed up by a study done by the RAF after the war that concluded that the Mosquito was 4.95 times more cost effective than the Lancaster.  This is probably due to the fact that with a fighter bomber you don’t need to waste man power and resources defending them against enemy fighters.
