New Zealand's First Mosquito

As is well known, Britain, Australia and Canada all built Mosquitoes in W.W.II.  With no flying examples currently, the rebuild of the Jerry Yagen example by Glyn Powell and Avspecs in New Zealand is much anticipated in the warbird world.

This magnificent film (by Bruce Salmon) illustrates, I suggest, what an amazing achievement that build is.

While this is an authentic restooration of an original Mosquito identity, I suggest it's not too much to see it as the first New Zealand built example.

Well done, the Kiwis.
