Built in laminated plywood by furniture-makers, and amply powered by Rolls-Royce engines, the de Havil-land Mosquito was a highly adaptable and uniquely successful Allied aircraft in World War II. The bomber prototype first flew in November 1940 and immediately began to exceed expectations of its performance. Billed as the fastest bomber in the world, it made its operational debut with the Royal Air Force in May 1942 and was soon adapted to photo reconnaissance, night-fighting, and fighter-bomber roles.
