The Mosquito truly earned it's nickname of 'The Wooden Wonder'. Made from a combination of balsa and plywood, and powered by two Rolls Royce Merlin engines, it was rugged and very, very fast. The design also lent itself to adaptation, being used as a fighter, bomber and in the photo reconnaissance role. It was particularly well suited to pinpoint bombing attacks, and saw action in some of the most dangerous, daring and successful raids of the war. Truly one of the great aircraft of WWII.
