On 29th September 2012 a unique aviation event will take place; the public unveiling and flight of a FB 26 de Havilland Mosquito

In the annals of worldwide aviation restoration, this is probably one of the most acclaimed events which has ever taken place and is a testament to the skills of the unique band of NZ craftsmen at Avspecs who have made this happen. Even more extraordinary is the fact that this has happened in NZ.

This event will gather enormous public interest and will be the focus of the world aviation press.

We hope you will be able to join with us in this unique celebration.
