De Havilland Mosquito RAF British Bomber WW2 Recon Pathfinder DVD
This DVD is a collection of very rare films on the famous De Havilland Mosquito. The Mosquito was a British multi-role combat aircraft and constructed almost entirely out of wood. Because of this construction, the Mosquito was strong, light and very fast. She could fly over 420 mph, and the Germans really had nothing to catch her. The Mosquito was used for photo recon, daylight raids and as pathfinders for night bombing.
