The DH98 Mosquito Lives Again - Bravo Avspecs! First Flight 9-27-12

 Here's an awesome pic from the Avspecs Limited facebook page of the Mosquito in the air near Auckland New Zealand on its first day back in the sky, Thursday 9-27-12. Could and airplane look more pefect than this?! The caption for the pic on their page: The DH98 Mosquito lives again! What a day! 3 flights and all home safe and sound.

 Bravo to all the people involved in making this dream become a reality. Lets hope that this is just the first of several Mosquito aircraft finding their way back into the wild blue yonder.

Amazing! This is wonderful! I am a Mossie fanatic from a long way back in my childhood when I first saw 633 SQN. What I wouldn't give to have one!
