Douglas A-20 Havoc practising skip bombing

Here we see a Douglas A-20 Havoc practising skip bombing, a low level bombing technique that was mainly used against enemy shipping, as the bomb would bounce across the water towards the target, without getting high enough to actually bounce over a ship. The shape of the glazing suggests that this is either an A-20, A-20A or A-20C, but the details that would identify the exact model can't be seen.
