This Mosquito has more than a whine and a bite

The de Havilland Mosquito, nicknamed the "Mozzie," was a wooden warplane developed by the British during World War II. I found it a chilling experience to see the guns in the nose and belly of this aircraft, not to mention the painting on the side representing the kills of enemy planes. This particular model was not completed in time to serve in the war, but was used for survey work in Kenya. Later it fell into disuse and was finally refurbished to be placed in the Alberta Aviation Museum.
