De Havilland DH98 Mosquito FB.Mk.VI

As the Belgian Air Force was quite satisfied with the use of the De Havilland Mosquito as a target towing aircraft the Belgian authorities decided to acquire three supplementary aircraft of this type. The Mosquito FB.VI, a ground attack aircraft modified by Fairey at Ringway (U.K.) for target towing thus becoming a Mosquito TT.VI), was selected. The last of these Mosquito was retired from service with the Belgian Air Force in mid-1956 as the target towing missions were flown by the fighter units themselves or by the Meteor F.8 equipped 25° Squadron.
