Standard built Mosquito
Military Feature -
The Club's archives have recently acquired this print of a Mosquito. The location of the shot is unknown, but the cameraman seems to be hiding in a camouflaged hanger! I have not seen this shot published before.
Whilst I can not say for certain that this is a Standard built plane, it did arrive with a batch of other Standard factory photos so the likelihood is that it is a Standard.
Standard built 1066 Mosquitos between 1943 and 1945. They took their maiden flights from Ansty Airfield near Coventry. This one is clearly equipped as a fighter, judging by the cannon poking out of its nose.
If anyone has photos of Standard built Mosquitos, I will add them to this site and return them to you.
