What a beautiful airplane, indeed ! What a stunning photo of a fabulous airplane that was "extinct" until very recently! I just purchased the November issue of "Air & Space" Smithsonian last night, (10-7-2012) and there is a fantastic story (on page 40) about the D.H.98 Mosquito ! About this very airplane.

I wonder how many people looking at this photo will realize that this plane was the fastest thing in the air in 1940 when it first flew, and that eventually De Havilland produced 7,781 "copies" of it........and that the world's last airworthy Mosquito crashed in 1996.......the story goes on to say....a Canadian built Mosquito, under "restoration" at Ardmore Airfield in New Zealand "may" fly before the end of this year....and HERE IT IS !!!

Thank you for posting this fabulous photo of this unbelievable airplane !

Wow, this a stunning photo of an amazing aircraft. When I saw it rolled out of the hanger I wondered if A.net would see an air-air photo from Gavin.

Surely one of the most delightful planes of all time. Very nice that there's one flying again.

Just perfect. The angle, the light, the subject - a classic air-to-air photograph.

This photograph of "the aircraft which saved Britain", has everything one would wish to find in an aerial shot, sharpness and colour are first class, it gives one the feeling of movement and speed, and the subject is exquisite!

The angle of the image just shows the clean lines of the aircraft beautifully.
