Brussels - Royal Army & Military History Museum. This is the historic deHavilland Mosquito fighter, used during WW-II. This was originally intended as a fast Bomber, but was eventually used in a variety of other roles, including photo reconnaissance. At the time, this was one of the fastest operational aircraft in the world, with a top speed of over 600 kmH. One unusual aspect of this aircraft is that it's constructed largely of wood including Canadian Birch, and over 1000 Mosquitos were built in Downsview, Ontario. These were heavily armed, with four 20mm Cannon and four .303 machine guns. These were mounted in the nose which was preferable in some ways to wing mounting, as it wasn't necessary to bring the target into the "convergence zone".
