The TT Mk 39 was a target tug, created by converting twenty four Mosquito B Mk XVI bombers. The resulting aircraft looked very different to the standard Mosquito, not least because it carried four crewmen. The most obvious change was to the nose, where the streamlined nose of the normal aircraft was replaced by a glazed camera operator’s position, increasing the length of the aircraft to 43 feet 4 inches. The fourth member of the crew operated the target towing winch from a position in the rear of the fuselage, covered by a raised fairing. The TT Mk 39 saw service after the war.
