FROM THE WORKSHOP
Gavin Conroy details the journey of the latest Mosquito rebuild to take flight from the Avspecs hangar in Ardmore, New Zealand
DE HAVILLAND MOSQUITO FB.VI
On January 13 this year, DH Mosquito FB.VI PZ474 became airborne for the first time since the 1950s, being the third airworthy ‘Mossie’ rebuilt by New Zealand’s Avspecs and Mosquito Aircraft Restorations. It’s a feat that until just a few years ago many thought almost impossible. This latest FB.VI will soon be delivered to its new owner, the US-based collector Rod Lewis.
