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.
