Nicknamed the 'wooden wonder' due to its largely wooden construction, the De Havilland Mosquito was one of the most versatile and successful combat aircraft of the Second World War. Offering insights into the design, construction and operational career of the iconic Mossie, this manual gets under the aircraft's birch and balsa skin to examine its anatomy and describe the painstaking restoration to flight by Avspecs (New Zealand) of Jerry Yagen's FB26 KA114 and of Victoria Air Maintenance's B35 VR796 in British Columbia, Canada.

After the Spitfire and Lancaster, the Mosquito is probably the most famous British military aircraft of WW2. Unique Haynes Manual insights into the construction and anatomy of the Mossie. Features the restorations of Mosquito FB26, KA114, and B35, VR796. Includes high-quality archive and restoration photographs. KA114 is currently the world's only airworthy Mosquito.
