De Havilland DH.98 Mosquito T/TT.3

Twin-engined target-towing and multi-engine trainer

Seven De Havilland DH.98 Mosquito T/TT.3s as well as a single instructional airframe of this type saw service with the Belgian Air Force. At first used as "multi-engine trainers" at the advanced flying training school at Brustem, the Mosquito T/TT.3's were soon replaced by the Oxford and moved on to the JVS/EC (fighter training school) at Koksijde where they relieved the Miles Martinet in the target-tug role. A single aircraft (MA-7) was used by N 10 Mosquito NF.30 Squadron as trainer/communications aircraft to spare airframe time on the war weary NF.30's.
