The First Flight of deHavilland Mosquito F-for-Freddie

I have followed the restoration of this Mosquito since 2010 and it was now time to do the first flight. As with anything in aviation there was some “hick-ups” and after a starter motor on the starboard engine went u/s the first flight was postponed to later in May 2014.

The aircraft managed to taxi and I got about 6 photos of that. Here are some of them.
