Luv the British flat-tops, but always thought their names were over the top--Invincible, Infatigable, etc. Woulda preferred royalty names like the battleships.

Now that picture is a real eye opener! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I've never heard of a Mossie landing on a Carrier.

The Japanese also had a Twin Engined plane similiar to the Mosquito but I cannot remember the name.
I do not think it was carrier bourne though, and I do wonder if it will be included in PF.

S!

If you look closely at the picture I think you can make out the shakles and chains that are holding him on that portion of the flight deck. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif You wouldn't catch me in that area during a trap! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

How does he keep his ankles from being cut off by the trap wire? He must have somewhere to run to on the port side of the ship.

I don't think anyone ever said the Mosquito was too lightly armed! four 20mm cannons and four .303 machine guns, sounds familiar, kind of like the P-61 with four 20mm's and four .50 cal's.

Did the Mosquito actually serve in the Pacific, though?

And is that Marauder story true or an urban legend?

Mosquito recce aircraft arrived in Burma in August 1943 and in early 1944 the first bomber versions flew with 27 squadron. By July 1945 seven squadrons were operational.

Source - 'The Forgotton Air Force: The Royal Air Force in the War Against Japan 1941-1945', by Henry Probert, ISBN 1-85753-065-9

...and there's even a film with one in - 'The Purple Plain' with Gregory Peck.

The RAAF used the Mosquitoes in the Pacific. I think with No.1Sqn and No.87Sqn.
