A De Havilland Mosquito of No 487 Squadron, RNZAF (Royal New Zealand Air Force), from RAF Hunsdon, Hertfordshire, photographed in February 1944 carrying a 500lb bomb beneath each wing. One of its most important roles in bomber command was to deliver onto a target the incendiary devices which by night provided the aiming point for the main force of heavy bombers.
