The de Havilland Mosquito was one of the few operational, front-line aircraft of the World War II era to be constructed almost entirely of wood and, as such, was nicknamed "The Wooden Wonder." It served many roles for the RAF beginning in November of 1940, including bomber, fighter, strike aircraft, and photo recon plane. More than 7,000 were manufactured.
