Nicknamed the 'wooden wonder' due to its largely wooden construction, the de Havilland Mosquito was one of the most versatile and successful combat aircraft of the Second World War. Offering insights into the design, construction and operational career of the iconic Mossie, this manual gets under the aircraft's birch and balsa skin to examine its anatomy and describe the painstaking restoration to flight by Avspecs (New Zealand) of Jerry Yagen's FB26 KA114 and of Victoria Air Maintenance's B35 VR796 in British Columbia, Canada.

The subject of this book is Mosquito FB26, KA114, a variant of the famous FBVI fighter-bomber that was used widely in anti-shipping strikes and in daring low-level bombing operations. Of all the variants of Mosquito built, the FBVI was the most numerous. KA114 is undergoing a major rebuild to airworthy condition on behalf of its US owner Jerry Yagen, by Avspecs in New Zealand.
