The Mosquito was hailed as the warplane that saved Britain. An unlikely hero - made mostly of plywood. Twin engine bomber capable of carrying a 4,000 lb bomb load. But where it really shone was its speed - faster than the Spitfire. The combination of a streamlined shape, light weight due to wooden construction, and twin high power V12 Rolls Royce engines gave it a performance advantage over most other aircraft. When it was equipped with a huge gun in its nose, it became known as a scourge of German submarines. It was also so fast it could do precision daylight bombing over Germany. One segment described how it was used to bomb train tunnels, sending delayed fuse bombs in one end of the tunnel, collapsing it so that train traffic was highly disrupted until the tunnels could be repaired.

It's also a little known warplane, not as famous as the Spitfire, the Mustang, or the B-17. But it was a brilliant solution for its time.

Everybody loved this mosquito.

Well, all the good ones loved her.

The Nazis, not so much.
