Mosquito Aircraft Restoration, Auckland, New Zealand
While visiting Ardmore Air Field in New Zealand, I was lucky to be invited to have a look around the Mosquito workshop where this was just finished being rebuilt. This is the world's only WWII-era Mosquito bomber capable of flying and will be at Oshkosh next year.
Unfortunately, I only had my phone to take the photos.
