See this footage on the new DVD or Blu-ray disk at http://www.aviationfilm.com/shop/dvds -- over two hours of awesome Mosquito video footage.

Awesome twin-Merlin sounds and great video of Keith Skilling and Dave Philips putting the newly restored World War 2-era Mosquito FB.26 fighter bomber through its paces during the aircraft's second display at Ardmore Aerodrome in Auckland, New Zealand.

KA114 (the serial no of this particular aircraft) is now painted in the colours of EG-Y of 487 (RNZAF) Squadron during 1943-1944. Three different Mosquitos carried these identification codes during that period.

This aircraft has been rebuilt/restored by AvSpecs (a.k.a. Warbird Restorations) in Auckland, and by a huge number and variety of subcontractors around the country and around the world -- well done (and thanks) to you all.

Special thanks to Glyn Powell of Auckland whose foresight and dedication over the past twenty years has meant that it has been possible to build a new wooden fuselage and wings for this aircraft.
