DH 98 Mosquito ZK-MOS Ready for its Debut at Ardmore Today 28/9/2012

The Mosquito was outside Avspecs this afternoon for test running of its engines, before its public debut at Ardmore tomorrow. I understand that it will be flying at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm.

It was looking magnificent!  Below I offer a selection of photos.

Test running was carried out on both engines, one at a time.

You have to find a high vantage point to get a photo that is not all wing.

The cockpit entrance ladder is very functional.

Then it was back into the hangar for fitting the engine cowlings which have now been painted.

There seemed to be a lot of Australian visitors who were very impressed with what has been accomplished by Glyn Powell and the team at Avspecs.

Roll on tomorrow!


  1. Stunning Job.

    Looks a bit more complete than whe I wa able to look atit in March 2010.

    Oh who's the lucky pilot then.....
