About the de Havilland Mosquito

“Probably no other aircraft during the Second World War captured the public’s imagination more than the de Havilland Mosquito. Its daring low-level raids against selected targets in enemy occupied Europe and the success it attained in the night-fighter and anti-shipping roles all added up to one of the most outstanding aircraft of the period.

The prototype two-seat Mosquito first flew in 1940 to an Air Ministry specification B.1/40, for an unarmed high-speed bomber-recce aircraft. Further development produced a night fighter version, the NF.11, of which 466 were built, service entry with RAF Fighter Command coming in January 1942, the type equipped initially with A.I. Mk.IV radar.

“Following the success of the Mk.II on intruder operations, came the Mk.VI fighter bomber, the most widely used of all Mosquito fighters (2,500 built). In addition to the four 20 mm cannon and four .303 machine guns in the nose, internal and external bombs could be carried as well as eight wing-mounted rockets. From the beginning of 1944, this version operated with Coastal Command with considerable success against convoys and coastal shipping and with the addition of a 57 mm Molins gun, the designation change to Mk.XVIII (27 built).

“Prior to D-Day, Mosquitos undertook many precision low-level attacks on the Continent including one on the jail at Amiens and another on the Gestapo Headquarters in Copenhagen. In the Far East Mk.VIs operated against the Japanese from the beginning of 1944.”
