A third Mosquito is flying...

Great news from New Zealand that Mosquito FB.VI PZ474 flew yesterday after its rebuild by Glyn Powell/Mosquito Aircraft Restorations/Avspecs, flown by Steve Hinton and Warren Denholm. Owned by Rod Lewis, it will be joining KA114 and TV959 in the US. Two more are moving right along through the rebuild process, one of which hopefully will come to the UK.

With an airworthy but currently unflown example in Canada and another Canadian machine being restored to airworthy standards PLUS a Sea Hornet rebuild underway in NZ, Merlin powered DH twins are looking quite healthy.
