    I'm looking for a pic of a DH Mosquito that had it's surface burnt when it blew up a V1 in flight and then flew through the explosion.

    I remember seeing a pic in a Mosquito book - which I think was the 'Mosquito at War' book by Chaz Bowyer but can't find a copy on the web.

    If you can find the pic, I was wondering if it's the event referred to in the book "Terror in the Starboard Seat" by Dave McIntosh (also referred to on these links The Birth Of Missile Defence: Air Force, Part 3 | Legion Magazine http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/stories/mosquito-vs-v-story-7823.html )

    Cheers AF - that's the pic I remember. I don't think thats Sid seid and Dave McIntosh in the photo though. Also, that Mossie is a NF version, where Seid/McIntosh flew intruder versions without radar.

    If there's a pic of the 418 Sqdn Seid/McIntosh Mossie then I'd love to see that as well!
