Born out of adversity, designed under the constraints of metal shortages in the aircraft industry, the Mosquito's revolutionary design established an engineering breakthrough. It gave Britain the most versatile twin - engined aeroplane of the Second World War.
Built from New Zealand beech wood and ply forty - three marks of this exceptional plane proved its efficiency in operational flights, both night - time and day - time, in photo reconnaissance flights, in support roles on large - scale bombing raids, in service in the far East and in peacetime roles.
The author tells the story of the gallant Mosquito through the vivid reminiscences of the men who designed, built and flew her. THE MOSQUITO LOG - a tale of inspiration and adventure, of duty and devotion.
