CoolPix - Vintage Military: Awesome Lineup Of 10 de Havilland Mosquitos

(click pic for hi-res)

 Here’s another CoolPix in the 'Vintage Military' category.  A lineup of 10 de Havilland Mosquitos that appear to be factory fresh and ready to go to war.

 In my mind, the de Havilland Mosquito is one of the best aircraft of all time for a variety of reasons.  Fabulous structural engineering resulted in an extremely light but strong airframe made mostly out of wood.  Great aerodynamic design made it an exceptional performer… extremely fast with a top speed of nearly 400 mph, and great handling qualities as well.  And then there’s the gorgeous lines of its shape.  Everything just seems to be in the right place.

 Be sure to view the hi-res version (click the pic) and look at the details of the airplanes.  It also looks like there’s a wind sock on beyond the last airplane in the line.  And look at that field… huge, smooth, and with short grass.  This is an absolutely awesome picture!

What a fantastic WW2 Fighter/bomber Aircraft I've read quite a few stories of pilots flying these aircraft during 1941-45 even today 2013, still has exceptional lines,so beautiful, to look at. and, apparently quite easy to fly. Also was favored by pilots as you could get in, and get the job done,with plenty of speed.The German Airforce hated them because of their performance. I do simulated flying and I have various versions of the Mosquito and everything works like switches the lot and its fantastic to fly.
