De Havilland Mosquito Launch Spectacular
A big occasion for British warbird fans, on 29 September the new build de Havilland Mosquito FB.26 is scheduled to fly for the first time at Ardmore Airfield, New Zealand. This will be the first time a full size Mosquito has flown since 1996, when RR299, the British Aerospance Mossie T.3 was lost in tragic circumstances that year. There will be an airshow celebrating everything de Havilland, as well as the star of the show's public unveiling and first flight. It's owned by Jerry Yagen and will go to the United States, so expect it to be seen at the odd airshow or two there in the future.
