Mosquito vs Me 410

Mosquito HK360, one of the first Mosquitos to be fitted with radar for night fighting, entered service with the 456 squadron in January, 1944. In April it was transferred to the Fighter Interception Unit where it was used for testing and experiments. Here it shown with a captured Messerschmitt 410, which had landed intact in Italy after its crew became lost.

The first time I've seen a wing mounted rader set-up on the Me410 - all of the other photos I've seen have the radar array mounted in the nose.
