After the tragic crash of the British Aerospace owned Mosquito some years ago, I was wondering if there were any left still flying ?

The one Kermit Weeks bought was Airworthy and has been kept in that state, but as to when it last flew i do not know, same with the Sunderland come Sandringham he owns.....sigh, there is one in Canada? i believe which is being rebuilt to fly, it is an Ex Spartan one.............

There are still a few Mossies flyable or being restored to flyable.

Here is a pretty comprehensive list of those that are left and where they are:

Great aircraft sad there are so few.
When I was at school in Liverpool in the 60s we heard of 10 of these beautiful aircraft that were to be burned as there was little or no scrap value in them.
Glad to say one of these was rescued and for a time was stored at Liverpool airport.
I belive it was used in the movie Mosquito squadron.
Just thought I would share that.
