EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the power and grace of a de Havilland Mosquito B.XVI, serial number NF311, as it prepares for a night mission with 571 Squadron of the Royal Air Force (RAF) during World War II. Part of the elite Light Night Striking Force, this Mosquito was a formidable weapon in the RAF's arsenal, renowned for its speed, agility, and versatility. The Mosquito B.XVI, with its distinctive long, slender wings and sleek fuselage, was a significant departure from the heavy, slow-moving bombers and fighters of the time. Made primarily of wood, this advanced aircraft was both lighter and faster than its metal counterparts, making it an ideal platform for night operations. In the image, the Mosquito's cockpit is illuminated by the glow of the ground crew's torches, casting long shadows on the tarmac as they prepare the aircraft for takeoff. The engine, already roaring to life, emits a plume of smoke that contrasts sharply with the surrounding darkness. The squadron markings on the fuselage and wings identify this aircraft as belonging to 571 Squadron, a unit that specialized in precision night bombing and reconnaissance missions. The Mosquito's success during World War II is a testament to the innovative design and engineering that came out of the de Havilland aircraft company. This photograph, taken by Charles E. Brown at the RAF Museum, offers a glimpse into the past, transporting us back to a time when the RAF's Mosquito fleet played a crucial role in the outcome of the war.
