Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A NZ Mosquito flies for the first time after being rebuilt, it's now the only airworthy example in the world.

  3. Good to see.
  4. Great aircraft. Even better in the air!

  5. Bloody hell, I came over all goose pimply as it went wheels clear. Don't let Monty know FFS!

    Will confess I had the idea that when I won the Euro Millions, I'd see if I could get ahold of the Mossie plans and maybe build one im my garage (I'd have been a millionaire. My garage would have been a HANGAR). Ever since I saw them on a programme years ago called the Genius of Design I've kinda wanted one :-D
  10. Guy Gibson was flying a Mosquito when he ran out of fuel and crashed and died. Sad end to an incredible man.
  11. I recognise that name, it'll come to me soon where from. Didn't he have a dog?
  12. Now that gentlemen, is an aircraft.
  13. .... or he was shot down by Bernard McCormack from the aft turret of a Lancaster...
  14. I hadn't heard that before, an even sadder end.
