June, 1942. The Mosquito FB MkVI first takes to the skies. Powered by two Merlin engines driving three-bladed de Havilland hydromatic propellers, the Mosquito FB Mk VI, which was almost entirely made of wood, was incredibly fast and incredibly manoeuvrable, with top speeds reaching 384 mph! Due to its speed and manoeuvrability, the FB MkVI was used by Coastal Command as an anti-shipping bomber towards the end of the war. They unleashed deadly attacks on coastal traffic and U-boats - all of which were heavily laden with anti-aircraft guns. Featuring regularly in film, TV and literature the De Havilland Mosquito FB Mk VI remains a classic and an iconic aircraft to add to your collection.
One of the most potent versions of the famous De Havilland Mosquito the FBVI matched the high speed bombing capability of the early glass-nosed bomber variants with the cannon and machine gun punch of the fighters, creating a fast and efficient fighter bomber. Operating across Europe and the Far East, the Mosquito came to be highly respected by its adversaries.
