  12. DE HAVILLAND MOSQUITO HAYNES MANUAL
    £25.00

    Mosquito. The very name says it all: home in on your target at speed – often undetected – sting hard, turn around and scarper, outwitting the enemy's attempts to swipe you out of the sky by virtue of your speed and manoeuvrability. If ever an aircraft was aptly named, it is the de Havilland DH 98 Mosquito.
