The de Havilland DH-98 Mosquito was certainly one of the most versatile and highest-performing airplanes of the war. And it was made of wood, releasing critical materials for other uses.

Many were manufactured in Canada at de Havilland Aircraft of Canada, Ltd., who cooperated with the staff of Aviation to produce a two-part Design Analysis article [ PDF, 24.3 MiB ], which was printed in the May and June, 1944 issues.


Not being an American plane, the Mosquito was not the feature of many articles.
