Front inside flap of d.j., neatly cut out with the rest of the d.j., laminated onto the boards o/w V.G.+. With the speed of a fighter and the range of a bomber, the de Havilland Mosquito - the "wooden wonder’ - was one of the most versatile British aircraft of World War II and ranks as a classic of aviation design. Published originally by the Air Ministry, this Manual is an authentic reprint of the actual workshop manual used by service personnel flying and maintaining the aircraft. Lavishly illustrated throughout, it presents the basic technical data for the Mosquito F.Mk.II, N.F.Mk.XII and N.F.Mk.XVII, including design and construction, wiring, servicing, engine installation, flying notes and controls and equipment.
