Thread: Update on Canada's Airworthy Mosquito Restoration

    Update on Canada's Airworthy Mosquito Restoration

    There has been a number of threads over the last year about the Mosquito restorations in New Zealand, primarily that of Jerry Yagen's, which should be flying sometime this year.

    However, there has also been a very active restoration being performed on a Mosquito located in Canada, registered CF-HML, owned by Bob Jens. When completed, the aircraft will be actively flown.

    An update on the progress was just recently posted for this month. The aircraft appears to be just as close to completion/flying as Jerry Yagen's:

    Hopefully, when Yagen's Mosquito is eventually back in the U.S., and both are opperational, there will be an opportunity made to put these aircraft up in the air together.

    Exciting times!

    It's looking good. I think this one may fly before the FB26.
