Getting back onto the subject of the worlds first stealth technology, multi-role combat aircraft..... :D

Here is a recent shot of Mosquito FB.VI PZ474 under restoration to flying condition for US collector Rod Lewis, at the Avspecs 'Mosquito Factory' at Ardmore in NZ.
First flight is due next year sometime, and it will become, technically the 4th flyable Mosquito in the world.

There's at least 1 Avro Anson flying belongs to BA systems heritage flight came over our house
about 2 weeks back those two Armstrong Siddeley Cheetah radials
were probably the best sounding radial I have heard for a long time.

A bit off topic but interesting Anson clip nonetheless! https://youtu.be/lp478Tgm5gg
