"In this exciting new title, the author tells the story of the aircraft, De Hav Mosq, and those who flew it. Enshrined in history as the "wooden wonder, " the De Havilland Mosquito was arguably the most beautiful aircraft ever built. Loved and respected by its flight crew and opponents, respectively, it is one of the iconic aircraft of World War 2. The original conception of the Mosquito was unusual-to make use of the spare capacity in Britain's furniture-making industry to construct a wooden aircraft-but once the aircraft took to the skies it was an immediate sensation. It could carry a huge range of hardware yet keep speed and maneuverability and its construction gave it ruggedness and an ability to bring its crew home. Combining 150 superb historical and present-day photographs with in-depth and descriptive content, this title is sure to be a hit among aviation enthusiasts worldwide."--Publisher's description.
