At dawn on a December day in 1944, a Mark XVI
Mosquito of No.140 Squadron, RAF, silently awaits its crew at Melsbroek,
Belgium. The hangar has been camouflaged as a barn. This pressurized photo
reconnaissance version of de Havilland's "Wooden Wonder," packed with cameras
and extra fuel, could cruise over enemy territory at over 40,000 feet in
excess of 400 mph if necessary.
