|GRANT BRADLEY, The New Zealand Herald|AIWA! NO!|A rare World War II Mosquito, completely rebuilt in Auckland for a Texas billionaire, is about to be rolled out as part of Armistice Day commemorations.
The twin-engine plane was used for wartime training, then by the RNZAF, and later was believed to have been used for spy missions by the CIA. It will be one of just three of its kind in the world still flying when completed.
It will be rolled out by the New Zealand Warbirds Association for public display next Sunday at Ardmore.
