Mosquito Makes First Flight


Zenith Open House
de Havilland Mosquito FB26

September 27, 2012 - Thursday marked the highly anticipated first flights of a de Havilland Mosquito FB26 that's been undergoing restoration over the past eight years by AvSpecs at Ardmore Airport in Papakura, New Zealand.

Owned by American Jerry Yagen of the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach, the plane made a total of three flights and had no major issues.

The iconic wooden fighter bomber, which will be brought back to the U.S., headlines a special event at Ardmore on Saturday, September 29, titled the "de Havilland Mosquito Launch Spectacular." See the Classic Aircraft Photography Facebook page for more information.
