de Havilland Mosquito KA114 in Virginia Beach, USA

Another post from that passionate blogger.

Aces Flying High

After having seen the worlds only flying de Havilland DH98 Mosquito(a FB Mk.26 fighter-bomber model with the serial number KA114) earlier this year in New Zealand over a 3 day period at Wings Over Wairarapa 2013 I was having some withdrawal symptoms and needed to see this beautiful machine fly again! I also have a special affection for this aircraft as a relative (Charles Scherf) flew them in World War Two and was one of Australia’s top air aces during this conflict, as such I had grown up hearing lots of stories about him and the “Mossie” from my Grandfather.  Given I am back in the USA I thought what better than to head to Virginia Beach to see her first public flying display in this country at Warbirds Over The Beach Air Show 2013 held at KA114’s new home the Military Aviation Museum.
