Here's a few pretty rare pics;
first ever attempt at a supersonic fighter (never flown due to politics)
Bristol thought that THIS was competition for the Spitfire and Hurricane!
The West was in fear of the 'Backfin' for years, it never reached service
Vought thought THIS was competition for the F-4!!
Sometimes the West feared bombers that the Russians hadn'r even built.
Not everything we came up with in WW2 was a Spitfire or a Mosquito you know.
The A380 big? Try 5 decks and 24 RR Conways!
Man about to get a surprise! Spectacular view of B-17 at Biggin Hill, 1977
"I say, did you hear a bang?"
Mind how you park around aeroplanes!
