The Mosquito Log, by A McKee
The Mosquito Log
by Alexander McKee
Alexander McKee, historian, diver and underwater photographer is best known for leading the team of amateur divers (including John Bevan) from the Southsea BSAC who spent 20 years searching for and eventually finding the Mary Rose. John Bevan’s admiration and respect for ‘Mac’ (as he was known to his friends) is reflected in his comprehensive collection of McKee’s books of which this is one.
During WW2, when metal for aircraft construction was at a premium, the wooden-framed mosquito came into its own as one of the most versatile aircraft in history. (The last operational flight was in 1958). This is the story of that aircraft which won the special affection of the aircrew and general public – from its approval by the Air Ministry in 1940 to the saving and restoration of the prototype in 1959.
