A Jet Provost, I used to be able spout all the stats you’d want about RAF aircraft. Can’t remember any of it now.
I’m not sure what this depicts. Possibly all aircraft that Vickers lent a hand in developing, but some of them are Hawker designs (e.g. The hawker P.1214, that’s the x-winged thing). I don’t know enough about the 60s-70s interrelationships of UK aerospace companies to say. I really should’ve taken notes.
