An unique design introduced into British service in November 1941, a year after its first flight and a troubled designed history. The de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was a twin-engine multi-role combat aircraft made almost entirely out of wood. Crewed by two pilots, the Mosquito was used in a variety of roles, including as a light and fast bomber, night fighter, maritime strike aircraft, reconaissance plane, fast transport, and more.
They were instrumental to the success of the British bombing campaign against Nazi Germany, where their speed and agility made them difficult, if not impossible to intercept by Nazi fighters. In fact, after high losses suffered in the beginning of its service, the Mosquito would end the war with the lowest losses of any RAF Bomber Command Service and bear the distinction of being one of the most precise and destructive bombers in service. A total of over 7,700 Mosquitos were produced, remaining in service as late as 1950.
