Striking by Night
de Havilland Mosquito
A versatile aircraft, the Mosquito proved a remarkable fast unarmed bomber, capable of carrying a sizeable bomb load. It proved particularly useful as a precision bomber and with the Pathfinder Force; only Lancasters dropped more target indicator bombs during the war. A Mosquito is displayed in the Memorial’s Aircraft Hall.
