    Great stuff ! I thought he was gong to 'stuff it' on that first landing though ! It could certainly pass for a 'Mossie' for movie work, when painted.

    From the front shot (without seeing the single tail fin) with the stubby wings it resembles a Do217 .

    Very cool!
    I went to the website listed at the end of the video.
    "Le Mosquito de Michel Bogaert" Association RRAA - Le Mosquito de Michel Bogaert Association RRAA
    It's pretty cool with a lot of pictures of the project. It's all in French, but using an on line translator I was able to find put that the project was started by 3 retired guys and has been going on since 1995 It's taken 30,000 man hours so far. The first flight shown in the video took place only a few days ago. I wish then luck!
