The bomber drops a bouncing bomb, but it bounces too high

What happens in this video ?

At the beginning of the Second World War, British invented the bouncing bomb to destroy enemy dams and battleships. To drop such bombs, the airplane had to fly exactly 20 meters above water at 400 km/h.
This video shows a bouncing bomb test that ended badly. The bomb bounced a bit too high on the water, and hit the tail of the plane. It resulted in a dramatic crash.

It's definitely not a de Havilland Mosquito-I should know being from Hatfield. There was a development of the original bouncing bombs later in the war in which two smaller weapons were carried by a Mosquito. These were codeworded "Highball

I would have to say it is an A-20 Havoc. Mosquito? No way. I don't see eliptical wing or rounded tail.

The aircraft was a Dehavilland Mosquito for sure no question.

I guess I'm mistaken? I thought that plane looked like a B- 24 Liberator! Those poor guys didn't know what hit them because it didn't take long for them to know they were going down! Poor guys.

Was a great invention! took out 3 dams in Germany and flooded out weapons manufacturing capability as huge waves devastated the industrial regions in the wake of the dams. Flown by Brits and Aussies.

Aircraft type looks like a Douglas A/B-26, from the tall tail to low slung radial engines.

Offhand, I would not call that one of Britian's greatest invention...
