The deHavilland Mosquito
The Mosquito was a twin engine multi-role combat aircraft developed by the British deHavilland company during World War Two. It is considered to be the first true multi-role aircraft to enter service. It operated as a fast bomber, day and night fighter, fighter bomber, intruder, transport, maritime strike and reconnaissance aircraft. Between 1940 and 1950, 7,781 were built and the prototype is on show at the deHavilland museum to the north of London.
Powered by two Rolls Royce Merlin engines and with a crew of two, the mosquito was one of the fastest piston engine aircraft to be developed.
Built from composite wood, including Balsa the aircraft was very strong and light and did not use rare metal resources. It could also be built by non aircraft manufacturers, for example cabinet makers.
There were many versions of the mosquito but they were all based on the basic airframe and engine combination which proved itself to be very versatile.
They were built in the UK, Canada and Australia.
