From September 29:

Air to air video of the FB.26 Mosquito KA114 as it screams in over Ardmore Aerodrome in Auckland, New Zealand.

This aircraft has been brilliantly rebuilt/restored by AvSpecs (a.k.a. Warbird Restorations) in Auckland, and by a huge number and variety of subcontractors around the country and around the world -- well done (and thanks) to you all.

Crank up your sound system and listen to the awesome power of four Rolls Royce Merlin engines in concert with an Allison v-1710 as de Havilland Mosquito FB.26 KA114 formates with a Supermarine Spitfire TR.9, a North American P-51D Mustang and a Curtiss P-40N Kittyhawk during the 'Mosquito Launch Spectacular' at Ardmore Aerodrome in Auckland, New Zealand.
