From almost being cancelled before it could get off the ground to being one of the most versatile combat aircraft of WW2 the De Havilland Mosquito has become an iconic plane of the war. Designed as a fast-medium bomber it was so successful it became a fighter, high-speed courier, torpedo bomber, photo-reconnaissance, low-level ground attack, precision bomber to name just a few. This is the story of De Havilland Mosquito.
