"Mosquitos" were developed during World War II and served with the Royal Air Force (R.A.F.), the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Royal Australian Air Force as well as scores of others during the conflict. Their design and power gave them the speed to serve a variety of roles, including fighter-bomber, night fighter, photo reconnaissance, and more. The DH.98s continued in service with the R.A.F. and other services until the 1950s. This DH.98 "Mosquito" is part of the Charles Somers Warbird Collection and its visit to Planes of Fame is made possible through his generosity. It is one of only four surviving"Mosquitos" that still fly (over 7,500 were built). Photos courtesy of Rob Askegaard, Mike Costello, John Rittenhouse
