When the De Haviland Mosquito was introduced in 1941
it was a revelation. A precision bomber that used speed as its primary means of
defence, it was successfully employed in a wide range of roles and across many
campaigns. Made almost entirely of wood, it was universally acclaimed by its
crews for both its excellent handling and its ability to take heavy punishment
and still get home.
The Mk B IV Unarmed bomber.
Rolls-Royce Merlin 21 and 23 engines. Capacity for four 500lb bombs (with
shortened fins) in the fuselage in place of the four 250lb bombs in the original
design. Later modified to carry a 4000lb bomb (blockbuster or "cookie") with a
bulged bomb-bay. The first operational sorties were made in daylight to Cologne.
The first bombing of Berlin by daylight was made by B.IV's on 30th January 1943.
She is a tight fit in our unit and is
shown with Tail plane , rudder and elevators. Sorry the picture's don't do
Seen on her Trailer with her bomb load

road use and had no brakes!!
