      An incredible opportunity exists to own the only bomber variant of the Mosquito available worldwide. Considered to be the pure Mosquito, the bomber variant was the first production example of the Mosquito and was the first aircraft in the Allied arsenal to bomb Berlin.

      Mosquito DZ542 was built to contract ACFT/555 by D.H. at Hatfield and was delivered to the RAF in March 1944. After acceptance it was issued to 618 Squadron at Skitten in April 1944. It moved with the unit to Wick on 9th July 1944 and again moved with the unit to Beccles on 21st August 1944.

      DZ542 was converted to a Highball configuration and used in evaluating the delivery of the Mini bouncing bomb. Following the cessation of hostilities the converted fleet were exported to Australia and based at RAAF Narrowmine.
      Eventually the unused fleet were sold off to local interests and in the mid 1980’s the remains of of DZ542 were acquired by Mosquito enthusiast Glyn Powell from New Zealand. 

      In addition to these components, Avspecs holds a quantity of other original components also sourced from Australia. Avspecs has purchased the project and is offering this aircraft as a complete ready to fly example, fully certified in either the USA or the UK.
