This is a cockpit video of the only flying mosquito in the world, restored in 2012 in Australia.

There are other youtube videos detailing the length of time and money that went into this project. It's like flying in one yourself!

Is that a Spitfire and a Lockheed P38 flying next to them?

I have all of those in my 1/72 model collection.

I saw the Spitfire but thought the other was jet driven, I'm not sure what it was but not a P-38.

I guess you're right, I should have watched the whole video, but I hate videos, even when about subjects I like.

Does anyone recognize the third aircraft?

Also, I'm curious to the differences between the P-38 and the Mosquito, performance-wise. I would have thought the mosquito would be faster, yet on the P-38 videos, they say the P-38 was real fast. Better engines than two Merlins??

my amature opinion:
Having flown both in simulation the p38 seems to be much the better fighter
the mosquito was a fighter bomber...maybe that's why
In ww2 it was successfully used to drop targeting flares for the following bombers which it was much better at doing then the Lancs that were first used for that job

The P-38 does look more streamlined than the Mosquito. I had thought a plywood plane would be damn fast with two Rolls Royce engines.

Thanks for the imput.
