Once I visited Sir George Edwards at his home after asking him to sign a print of a VC-10 over SFO. When I unrolled the print he said the VC-10 would have been a world beater but was 3 years too late.

As a side note - walking out of his house I saw this magnificent oil painting of a Wellington fitted with the magnetic mine 'hoop' flying just above the sea with a mine explosion behind it. I commented on it and he said that was the first project he was in charge of and he had to reort the Churchill every night on its progress.
