This DVD is a must for anyone interested in this incredible aircraft; particularly, if like me you were privileged to see one flying and landing.

A thoroughly good DVD on my favourite aircraft of all time. Quite a lot of content that I hadn't seen before so good one. Great shots from inside the ill-fated RR299.
Thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in this great, legendary plane.

Your synopsis of this item is hopelessly inadequate and indeed inaccurate, as you would see by consulting the reviews of any of the articles you sell concerning the Mosquito. The Mosquito was first designed as an unarmed bomber, and was such a good design that it was produced in more variants than any other aircraft in WWII. If I am not mistaken, it first saw operational service in unarmed photo-reconnaissance. Part of the synopsis of Edward Bishop's book would be far more adequate:
"Photographic-reconnaissance aircraft, day and night fighter, bomber, mine-layer, torpedo-bomber, pathfinder, tank-buster, submarine-smasher - the de Havilland Mosquito was the most successful and versatile military aircraft of World War II."
The Mosquito was perhaps the finest aircraft ever built. Despite resistance to the unheard-of drawing-board concept of a bomber fast enough to do without defensive armament, it went ahead as a semi-private project until it first flew, and then even the Americans wanted it - an honour bestowed on very few British aircraft. It remained the fastest aircraft in the world for a few years, faster even than the Spitfire. I have even heard say that the Luftwaffe could count it as two kills if they shot one down. It is such a shame that to my knowledge none still fly today - this is presumably largely due to the fact that they were made of wood.
I could go on forever about the Mosquito, but people like Edward Bishop are far more eloquent and better informed than I.
