              A celebratory book and two documentaries about the famous aircraft In the age of metal fuselages and wings how could an aircraft largely built of wood possibly become one of the most famous British aircraft ever and arguably the best military aircraft of World War II? The Mosquit...o was built by de Havilland which had already created classics such as the Tiger Moth and Dragon Rapide. It would prove to be the most versatile aircraft in the Royal Air Force's wartime inventory being used as bomber, day and night fighter, for reconnaissance, pathfinding, minelaying, and photographic roles as well as in Coastal Command for attacks on enemy shipping. It could patrol, intrude, attack, and evade as well as anything else flying at the time. Almost 8,000 Mosquitos were built and they were flown by almost every country's pilots fighting with the allies including Americans, Canadians, Australians, and South Africans.The publishers of Mosquito: Unseen Images from the Archives have scoured the archives to come up with an unrivaled selection of rare and unseen images showing the full history of the Mosquito from its inception before the war through its hugely successful wartime career to the final post-war flights. Accompanying this ground-breaking book are two documentaries: De Havilland presents the Mosquito, and early film telling the aircraft's history and Gaining Altitude, the story of the rebuilding of a Mosquito to airworthy condition in Canada.
