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

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 3, 2013:
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!

Reminds me of Squadron 633 and Cliff Robertson.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 26, 2012:
Just perfect. The angle, the light, the subject - a classic air-to-air photograph.

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.

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 8, 2012:
Great stuff, Gavin. Indeed, she's a beauty!

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 8, 2012:
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 !

A visitor from New Zealand posted Mon October 8, 2012:
Absolutely beautiful!

A visitor from New Zealand posted Mon October 8, 2012:
I saw this beauty at Ardmore! Amazing aircraft, sounds beautiful! Well done to the restoration team, excellent job. Can't wait to see the T.3

A visitor from New Zealand posted Mon October 8, 2012:
A beautiful photo of a beautiful aircraft. Another stunning Gavin Conroy work.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Mon October 8, 2012:
It's been fantastic to watch this aircraft being rebuilt, take shape and then take to the air. Great photo, thanks for sharing it.

A visitor from Germany posted Mon October 8, 2012:
Finally an airworthy Mosquito, love it Gavin! Best regards from Frankfurt - Thomas
