In the movie, target towing type TT.Mk.35s were used. Go to: The world's only flyable Mosquito

I love the flying sequences of a formation of six restored real mosquitos sharply performing a side sliding roll over the landscape of Scotland and boldly continuing a low-level invasion flight over the North Sea into a Norwegian fjord.

SCALE MODELS: One of my hobbies during junior and senior high school days (circa 1964-1970) was building plastic scale aircraft models with studying reference magazines and books, and hand painting with use of Humbrol's or Japanese enamel matte paints when airbrushing was still unavailable to common and young modellers with limited allowance as me. Here are a few pictures of a 1/48 scale Monogram Mosquito FB.IV day bomber type, which I still reserve, actually thanks to my parents, with other models.

"Only mad dogs and Englishmen (and the odd Belgian) go out to airports without any intention of boarding an aircraft it seems", writes BBC News Online's Ryan Dilley regarding British plane spotters.
