A newly-discovered hoard of secret Second World War aircraft technical drawings will be used by enthusiasts to rebuild and launch a Mosquito plane into the skies above Britain.
More than 20,000 wartime Mosquito engineering drawings and diagrams have been found in the corner of a wartime factory just days before bulldozers were due to flatten it.
The archive includes what are thought to be the world’s only complete set of engineering drawings for the plane, as well as details of variants that never made it off the drawing board.

Awesome find! Hopefully they scan them and put them into an online archive for everyone to access. I know we'd all love to look through them.
My god! When was this,...how,...who,.... what?? My head is about to explode! I thought those drawings had been lost. This means its possible to build a copy if they are good enough. I assume they are of the final iteration as opposed to the earlier radial concept? I have daydreamed about somebody being able to build a copy of a CAC15, this makes it now theoretically possible.
Only late last year a complete set of CaC15 Kangaroo blueprints have been found here in Auss.
