English: Aircraft of the Royal Air Force, 1939-1945- De Havilland Dh.98 Mosquito.
The prototype Mosquito NF Mark XV, MP469, the former pressurised Mosquito prototype, at Hatfield, Hertfordshire, after modification by the De Havilland Aircraft Company as a high-altitude night fighter by increasing the wingspan, and by fitting Rolls Royce Merlin 61 engines with four-bladed propellers. AI Mark VIII centimetric radar in a ‘thimble’ nose radome and a ventral gun pack housing four .303in machine guns were also added before the aircraft joined the High Altitude flight at Northolt, Middlesex for operational trials. Later, MP469 was passed to the Aeroplane and Armament Experimental Establishment, and also saw service with the Telecommunications Flying Unit and No. 85 Squadron RAF.

This tag is designed for use where there may be a need to assert that any enhancements (eg brightness, contrast, colour-matching, sharpening) are in themselves insufficiently creative to generate a new copyright. It can be used where it is unknown whether any enhancements have been made, as well as when the enhancements are clear but insufficient. For known raw unenhanced scans you can use an appropriate {{PD-old}} tag instead. For usage, see Commons:When to use the PD-scan tag.

Note: This tag applies to scans and photocopies only. For photographs of public domain originals taken from afar, {{PD-Art}} may be applicable. See Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag.
