Throughout the war the British Overseas Airways Corporation maintained regular flights between Leuchars, Scotland and Stockholm, Sweden. The route was treacherous due to poor weather and the fact that much of the time was spent flying over occupied Norway. By the end of 1942 the BOAC were looking for a fast and dependable airplane that could avoid enemy fighters and still deliver and extract sensitive material from neutral Sweden. Enter de Havilland's "wooden wonder", the Mosquito. The first Mosquito allotted the BOAC was PR IV DZ411. It was given the civilian code G-AGFV and had modified engines making it the fastest Mosquito airborne at that time. Soon after, the BOAC acquired six unarmed FB.VI Mosquitoes to add to DZ411. The BOAC Mossies were vital in transporting important documents to and from Sweden, as well as a few passengers and essential materials in their bomb bays. This sheet allows the modeler to depict G-AGFV at any point in her career and details the unique modifications to her engines.
