de Haviland Mosquito FB.VIs in a World War II attack

10 October 2018

World War II combat image of de Haviland Mosquito FB.VIs of 248 Squadron attacking a German ‘M’ Class minesweeper and two trawler-type auxiliaries in the mouth of the Gironde River, off Royan, France, on 12 August 1944. Bombs can be seen straddling the vessel, which later blew up. From mid-1942 to mid-1943, Mosquito bombers flew high-speed, medium or low-altitude daylight missions against factories, railways and other pinpoint targets in Germany and German-occupied Europe—Crown copyright

    Ah! the Mosquito FB.VI…funny you should mention that, since The People’s Mosquitio is starting to build one!

    Here is a classic color film of 627 Sqn attacking a German airfield in Occupied Holland with the bomber version of the Mosquito.
