The Mosquito Reborn: Gaining Altitude

About the Show

A documentary account of the de Havilland Mosquito, one of Britain's most famous warplanes. Archival footage and interviews with veteran pilots intersperse the story behind the restoration of a Mosquito that had not flown for over 50 years. Manoeuvrable, light, built of wood and the fastest aircraft on the planet at the time, the Mosquito played a crucial role for Allied Forces in World War II.
