The French association Reconstruction Répliques Avions Anciens has succesfully carried out the first flight of its 3/4-scale Mosquito replica. Here is a video of the first flight, by Jean-Pierre Montreuil.
Work on the replica began in 1995 and required over 30,000 hours of work before it was ready for the first test at the Fontenay-le-Comte airfield. The first engine test were carried out earlier this year and were then followed by high-speed ground tests. The first flight took place on April 23, 2011.
