In designing and building the Mosquito the De Haviland aircraft company achieved the holy grail of military aircraft construction. A bomber which could outperform any contemporary fighter. Not only that, but an aircraft which was amenable to an endless series of adaptations and whether performing its role as a bomber, fighter, fighter-bomber, or photo-reconnaissance machine the Mosquito was supreme. Furthermore the Mosquito was created in the face of official indifference, even hostility and to the De Haviland company must go the total credit for creating the finest warplane of World War 2.
