Not DH or Supermarine Gents. And despite appearances it's not a British design.

Just checking in. Not a bizjet David. It's design is from a pre-bizjet era and was for military purposes.

Going offline again but will look in again later.

Seeing this more and more...

Hi Graeme...yes its the Me.262 HG.III variant, which according to some sources was actually under construction before the end of WW.II. Others suggest it was the mock-up that was being built.



Enjoy Top Gear mate....not seen that episode.

Noyade has declared Open House
