COUNTRY LIFE '43
With a unique airframe constructed of wood, the Mosquito was light but exceptionally strong and had a reputation with its crews of being able to get them home even when heavily damaged. Few other aircraft were so highly regarded by the crew that flew them and enthusiasts alike, making the Mosquito one of the greatest aircraft of WWII.
Gerald has captured the scene perfectly as a pair of Mosquitos return from a low-level precision bombing raid over occupied Europe. It is a cold, misty winters day and as the sun rises over the countryside, the unmistakable sound of Merlin Engines shatter the silence as these magnificent aircraft head back to their base.
