You know that:

  • The aircraft's designer was Sir Geoffrey de Havilland, who built his first working aircraft in 1908 with money from his grandfather ?
  • The aircraft almost never came into existence because the Minister of Aviation, Lord Beaverbrook, repeatedly demanded the project be terminated, but subordinate officials, aware of the potential of the new machine, disobeyed the orders ?
  • The Mosquito was originally developed as an unarmed bomber and reconnaissance aircraft, but when it first flew on 25 November 1940 it surprised everyone with its high speed and good manoeuvrability ?
  • Immediately after a successful demonstration flight, RAF Command ordered immediate production ?
  • The aircraft achieved extraordinary performance and quality despite the fact that most of the structure was wooden, which is why it was nicknamed "The Wooden Miracle" ?
  • The Mosquito was so versatile that the British and American armies deployed it as a bomber, day and night fighter, or as a reconnaissance aircraft ?
  • After its first deployment in 1941, it caused the Luftwaffe an unpleasant surprise as the Mosquito was able to escape pursuit due to its high speed and even the NF 30 version was not caught by any German fighter ?
  • The aerial ace at Havilland was Canadian pilot Robert Aleen ,,Bob" Kipper, who in a night action from 2 to 3 May 1944 penetrated deep into enemy territory and shot down 4 German Fw-190 ?
  • The attacks by Havillands of 418th Fighter Squadron were so devastating that they shot down or destroyed 96 Luftwaffe machines on the ground during a night action over Germany ? 
  • Mosquito aircraft became famous for the attack known as Operation Jericho on the Gestapo prison in the French city of Amiens on 18 February 1944 in which most of the imprisoned French patriots managed to escape ?
  • After the war, Mosquito machines were also in the arsenal of the Czechoslovak Army under the designation B 36?
  • A total of 7,781 were produced in various versions?

What the BBC said about de Havilland:

"Wood has always been one of the most valuable weapons of war. Not so long ago, the world's mightiest fleets were built of wood - in fact, they were just trees moving across the sea. But if somebody told you that before long these fallen giants would be hovering over the English Channel to blast German war machines, you'd probably think they were a bit tipsy."
