Default Canadian dehavilland mosquito restoration project

Thought I would bring you all up to date on this amazing project. A milestone month for the project in April when the engines came back to life after several decades.

Fingers crossed it will be in the air once again later this year!

Spectacular achievement! Congratulations to all for their work so far.
Would love to see it taxi in front of my local BCATP hangars (Debert)

Cheers

Wayne

Awesome! So, that should be the second flying Mossie than?
I was surprised to see pictures of a silver hull, but I presume that's some sort of protective paint for the wood?

Great work!
Alex
