Good morning one11,

At the risk of this turning into a tennis match.....
It does look a rather like that at the moment; dunno where everybody is and I'm going to be pretty tied up during working hours (this is conveniently my coffee break)!!

You are of course correct; it is the Armstrong-Whitworth AW.52 (A real flying-wing this time!)



New Balls Please!!

I wont be checking this for about 24 hrs but by way of a clue. Not a tri-jet but something odd about it.

Hmm... the Reggianne RE.2007 was only a concept.

Ambrosini Sagittario?

Edit; open house if correct.
