de Havilland Mosquito · 1940 onwards (all marks) #2# Owners' Workshop Manual

by Jonathan Falconer and Brian Rivas

An insight into developing, flying, servicing and restoring Britain's legendary "Wooden Wonder" fighter-bomber

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.
