I sat in the pilots seat of W4050, the yellow Mosquito prototype shown above 4 weeks ago at Salisbury Hall. The hairs on the back of my neck stood to attention then and do now at the thought of it. It was quite an experience. Thanks to the member of the museum staff who offered me the opportunity.

Gee, for a minute I thought these were pictures of the Maddox Mosquito Works.

No, wait, they're too busy building 109Zs to make real airplanes http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Nice pictures.

I've always been curious about how you'd repair a wooden plane, especially a mossy because of its size and complexity (in refernce to the sandwiched layers). Say it takes damage from flak or bullets and leave holes in the skin and maybe damages the wing spar for example (was the wing spar wood as well? and how would you remove it if it was glued together?) how was it fixed if it was all wood, with much of the skin being a layed composition, unlike metal panels which could be taken of an a new one put on or the structure taken apart and bolted back together. Also the body was 2 halfs, was one half simply removed and another new one stuck on the old one? Could the sandwiched layers of the skin be cut out an replaiced with a new section? Sounds like a silly question but with all that wood glue and the way it was constructed im curious and if someone could answer that it would be appreciated.

Damaged parts were cut off and new one glued in place and fastened with screws. I recall reading a story where the deHavilland repair men cut whole damaged wing off with a big hacksaw and glued new one in. The pilot of that plane refused to fly it again after he saw this happening, but another one took it and flew it till the end of war. Unbelievable but true. I will try to dig out the original story.

There is a very good little book by a wartime Mosquito repair man, called "You bend'em, we mend 'em". It goes into great detail of how major repairs were done. I read it many years ago, but it is a rare and hard to find book. I'll try to find the ISBN.

This site has a good description of the construction technique:-

Thanks for the answers!

I'll see if the county Library if it has that book, theres always a chance.

The Mosquito was designed with the thought in mind of making use of an industry that wasn't involved in the war....The Furniture Industry.

Carpenters were in plentiful supply and by using their skills to make planes instead of chairs it would assist in the defence of the realm.

I had the fortune to meet one of the 'old boys' who flew the 'Mk IV' in our Officers Club many years ago and the stories he could tell of the 'Wooden Wonder' defied belief.

A highly successful aircraft and one of the few that will go down in history as being well designed from the outset.

Great Pics Ham. The Mosquito was a very bold concept IMO. Unlike most concepts though the Mosquito actually lived up to expectations and then some. The fact that the Germans tried to build their own version was a great compliment to the RAF.
