It was one the fastest operational aircraft in the world, one of the most envied – and one of the most feared. Built almost entirely of wood, the beautifully streamlined ‘Wooden Wonder’ was a triumph of ingenuity at a time when resources of light alloys were in extremely short supply.
With its outstanding speed and the ability to carry a significant payload, the Mosquito became the finest multi-role combat aircraft of WWII. No other Allied military aircraft was built in so many versions for so many different roles – some 43 different variants were produced during its long and distinguished career.
Robert Taylor’s powerful and dramatic painting depicts Mosquito Mk.VIs from 143 Sqn, part of the famous Banff Strike Wing, delivering a blistering rocket attack on enemy shipping off the Norwegian coast in early 1945.
