    Russell's cousin Martin was alright with a bat, though.

    He needs to mention Clarrie Grimmett for the full set.

    It was the thought of Russell Crowe being considered an actor that added static to my receptors!

    Ha! That's funny. You forgot about the pavlova though!

    I think you'll find Avspecs hail from the other side of the Tasman Sea!

    Edit: Ah, ok, my Irony Detector has just come on line...

    Well deserved! Congrats to the team.
    I had a chance to look it over at Oshkosh.It's as magnificent as you'd imagine.
    It wasn't the only DH to win an award. The DHC-1 Chipmunk I'm partnered in won "Best primary trainer" I was chuffed!

    Hi All,
    Seafuryfan - I have just been on they're page and thought odd nobody had published the following considering how good this particular aircraft looks.

    Congratulations to all involved with this excellent aircraft.......

    Oshkosh last week. Not the best shots but indicative of the amount of interest it was attracting! Unfortunately we weren't there when it flew.

    That is a thing of beauty.

    Am I the only one, though, who prefers it without the rockets fitted?

    I figured the reference to three regarded flyable aircraft in the USA.

    It is great that they can built, dismantle, ship and rebuilt a Mossie in next to no time.

    Hi All,
    O.K. then four if you count the Bob Jens Mosquito C-FHMJ (VR796) but like stated has not flown since 2015 which it makes it a potential to fly IMPO. Apologies I should of added currently flying, which is such a shame after all that effort to make VR796 airworthy again.....

    Just found this photo plus 11 extra photos of delivery and the start of reassembly of PZ474 courtesy of http://www.facebook.com/KiwiMosquitos/......

    You're right, the three built by Avspecs and the Bob Jens Mosquito C-FHMJ (VR796) in Canada - but it hasn't flown since 2015 (and has been rumored to be for sale). Steve Hinton has time on three of the four.

    I was under the impression there were 4? The 3 Avspecs Mossies & the one resto'd in Canada? (I don't count Kermits hangar queen...)
