Happy Jack260: Sorry not one of Hawker's
Mel: Not by Blackburn either

Unlike the Firebrand this aircraft was built in considerable numbers

Sorry Akubra, this aircraft was not built by Fairey

However, a small number of the total built were operated by the Fleet Air Arm

Remember this one at Biggin Hill in the early 70's

oncemorealoft is correct It is a SAAB J.29 Tunnan.
The highly manoeuvrable swept-wing fighter first flew in 1948, with over 600 examples being produced. It held the world speed record in 1954. You have control.
