Sunday Aircraft Cheesecake (Mosquito)

With thanks to Your Maximum Leader for the recommendation, I present another De Havilland airplane this week, the Mosquito:



Quite an incredible aircraft. As a result of its molded plywood and balsa wood construction, this twin-engine plane, which was originally specified as a bomber, became one of the fastest, longest-range multirole fighters of World War II.

It packed quite a punch: in its typical night-fighter package, it carried four 20mm cannon in a belly mount and four .303 machine guns in the nose.

As the McKenzie Brothers would say, "Beauty eh?" Thanks for the shout-out, and thanks for the great aircraft cheesecake.
