We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I agree that it was a wonderful piece of machinery, but it didn't save Britain. If it hadn't been for the Spitfire in 1940, coupled with the state-of-the-art aircraft control system England would have lost the war. And if England went dark in 1940, I think Hitler would have won the whole enchilada (winks at Dan Rather). If England is knocked out by Operation Sea-lion, America has no place to prepare for a 1944 invasion and Hitler would likely have knocked out Russia in 1941 or 1942 as well.
Of all the Marks of the Mosquito, I think the best-looking is the PR.MKXVI, one of which is well-preserved at the AF Museum in Dayton, in USAAF colors. And check out 633 Squadron, which used actual aircraft that were (crudely) modified to look like like FB.MKVI (fighter-bomber) types. When watching flight scenes in that flick, turn volume up to LOUD. In my not-so-humble opinion, the PR Mosquito is the best-lookin' aircraft of the war. (B-17 and P-51 lovers, pile on!!!)
