That Steve Hinton really gets around...

 

Love seeing all these old warbirds popping up in my area, still need to get out to Comox to see the Spit they are restoring.

Wow beautiful restoration...

 

No mosies from the war exists.

General 3D modeling thread and reference sites

UK liveries for planes, ships and MODS.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

...from another Mosquito thread

Omg, she's such a beauty, my favourite WWII plane. I really hope, that someone will choose it to develop this wooden wonder for the DCS...

It's a pitty that there are so few of them airworthy nowadays. How many? Two? Three?

I take care of Victoria Air Maintenances' fire suppression concerns and got in there today. Here's a few answers to some of the questions above...

 

The aircraft is in Vancouver, in a private collection (as Sithspawn mentioned) and the owner says she'll never fly again. So sad. It's unlikely to be seen again as this collector is very private.

 

100% original restoration. 2 aircraft tech's, 40+ hours a week for 5 years.

 

$1000.00 an hour for fuel.

 

$5000.00 an hour for insurance.

 

2 Mosquito's air worthy world wide... one in New Zealand, cobbled together from 3 different airframes, and this one in Vancouver.

 

Knowing this makes me feel fortunate in watching the restoration over these past 5 years. Should have known how sensitive the owner was... they (Vic Air) wouldn't let me take any pics after the 1st. year. But I did get to see her fly!

That's a shame, it seems like a lot of effort to not fly it? When I win the Euro I'll make sure mine is flying every display it can for the world to see. :thumbup:

 

 

Its reasonable to assume that if its rare enough, flying it might not be the best plan.

There is currently a kickstarter running to raise funds for a documentary about the restoration of the Mosquito by Victoria Air Maintenance (Victoria, Canada). Worth a look if you are as crazy about the Mossie as me.
