When first flown, the Mosquito, produced by de Havilland, had the speed and altitude to evade any enemy aircraft of the day. It was built from pressed wood veneer, and because of its speed, had no defensive armament.

The de Havilland Mosquito carried the payload of a medium bomber. It could out run and out climb early Spitfires.  Eventually, the aircraft would be used as a night fighter, fighter/bomber, maritime strike aircraft, bomber escort, and for photo reconnaissance.

A total of 7,781 Mosquito aircraft of all types were built from 1940 through 1950.
