The flight of the only airworthy DH98 Mosquito aircraft in the world wowed a crowd of thousands that included World War II veterans at an airshow at Ardmore Airport in Auckland on Saturday.
"It was magic," aircraft restorer Glynn Powell told NZ Newswire.
The flight of the fighter bomber was the culmination of years of painstaking work started by Mr Powell and completed by Avspecs for American owner Jerry Yagen, who will keep the aircraft at his Military Aviation Museum at Virginia Beach in the US.
