Found this today on another flight sim website, very cool video with great interior and exterior views of this gorgeous and rare warbird in flight.

Wow, I check wikipedia and its pretty interesting about this plane, this one in particular, just recently had its 1st flight.

Survivors
Main article: List of surviving de Havilland Mosquitos

One aircraft, Mosquito FB.26 KA114, built in Canada in 1945, has recently completed restoration by Avspecs Ltd, Ardmore New Zealand and flew for the first time on Thursday 27 September 2012. The third, fourth, fifth and sixth flights were watched by several thousand spectators at a special air show at Ardmore on Saturday 29 September 2012. . The restored Mosquito is owned by Jerry Yagen and is heading to its new home at the Virginia Military Aviation Museum, in Virginia Beach, USA, as soon as transport logisitics have been worked out. A complete set of forms, jigs and molds will allow for new Mosquitos to be built.[147]

The aircraft FB.26 was again flown over Wellington, New Zealand on Friday 18 January 2013 to publicize the Wings Over Wairarapa airshow on the following day at Hood Aerodrome, Masterton. On the Saturday thousands of Wellington residents and others were treated to a spectacular flying display by FB.26, including a formation consisting of the Mosquito and two Spitfires.

16 years earlier, the then-only airworthy Mosquito, a T3 RR299 G-ASKH "HT-E", was destroyed in an airshow accident at Barton, Manchester, England, on 21 July 1996, in which both aircrew were killed. In 1959 RR299 was based at Exeter Airport serving in the CAACU (Civilian Anti-aircraft Cooperation Unit) located there. There are approximately 30 non-flying examples around the world with several under restoration. The largest collection of Mosquitos is at the de Havilland Aircraft Heritage Centre, which owns three aircraft.

What can I say other then I'm Jealous... :Smile_sad:

Looks like a great time, I'm hoping the Mossie comes close this summer after they get her to the States and put back together. Offut AFB would be great, but I can see driving to Kansas City or the Quad Cites too to see her.

I'll do some digging, I saw a video of the Anson in flight somewere, though I think it was all from the cockpit.
