Mosquito TIII TV959 has come a long way since being a static exhibit with one wing sawn off. This is the story of its return to airworthiness for the Flying Heritage Collection — complete with an exclusive pilot’s eye view
Monday 26 September 2016 was another historic occasion at Ardmore, New Zealand.

It increased to three the world’s airworthy population of the type.
