The Squadron’s Aircraft

This page is still very much a “work in progress”, and  lists all the de Havilland Mosquitos operated by 488(NZ) Squadron. It covers the Mk.XII, Mk.XIII, Mk.30, and Mk.III variants. A list of the Squadron’s Beaufighters will follow once I have checked and compiled the data.

Where known, a tail code is included. Some of these have come to me from other sources, but those marked with an asterix have been verified by myself as correct.

Again, thanks to Graham Clayton for the thorough information provided about these aircraft. If anyone has additions or corrections to this list, or if you wish to know more about a particular aircraft, please let me know and I will endeavour to assist.
