Airworthy Mosquito in Kelowna.

(Where the f**k is Kelowna?)

An airworthy Mosquito was delivered to Kelowna this afternoon. (Damn, I didn't know and I wasn't there!) It is destined for the Kelowna Flightcraft Museum, due to open later this year. KF are also reconstructing a Tempest to Flight worthy condition.

One of the handful of Mossies built by Airspeed, presumably at Christchurch.

This is the airframe that was restored in Canada (VR796, CF-HML). It still has the original wood in its airframe, see here for an article about it: https://warbirdsnews.com/warbirds-ne...-mosquito.html

I can remember the articles in the press back in the 1980's after Ed Zalesky bought it, and when he then advertised it for sale in the late 90's.
