I'm thinking more specifically here,such as 'classic' planes that have been partly re-engined.

Without googling, who knows what the Miles Gillette Falcon was?

No takers?

It was a regular Miles Falcon (think pre-war Piper Cherokee) converted to flight test the low speed handling qualities of the wings and tail of the Miles M.52 supersonic aircraft then in development. The name deriving from the "razor sharp" thin surfaces that were like nothing seen before.

Nope. It's also the reason they used to start the other engines first.

No generator on the #1 engine.


And as a followup, what was the significance of the black lines on the tail?
