DH Mosquito (Bomber): Un-bombastic.

Simplicity itself, the magnificent spear tip of one of those Mosquito variants. The Navigator (who wears a type “C” helmet and a “G” oxy mask) is seen here posing, not very convincingly, with the RAF Bomber Command’s standard Mk IXA Course Setting Bomb Sight (CSBS). The Mk IXA was replaced in later Mosquito Bomber versions by the Mk XIV bomb sight and the TIB bomb sight.

P.S: Most of the recon “Mossies” also had this gadget.
