Sorry gents, this was neither a jet or a naval ac. As Sycamore suggests, the name was reused for a different type of machine after this one left service.

Not a Hawker, but it did gain some success in the same role as the Typhoon.

Westland Whirlwind? Open house if it is.

Question about p5 in this thread

Just out of interest is anyone else having trouble getting onto page 5 of this thread? I normally use a Win 8.1 machine as its the biggest screen I have, however since last night (21 Mar) the only way I can see p5 onwards has been to use my Android phone, which is pretty crummy when it comes to editing, posting and looking at pictures.

Kitbag,

Maybe it's just me but I don't see how the first and second cutaways you posted could possibly be the same aircraft.

Let me go back and check, I'll post the unaltered originals later. I'm certain I have the right pictures though.

OK, I42, bearing in mind hey are left and right views; here is a flickr link which, when you get past the ads has images of a Westland Whirlwind as photos and the drawing I reversed the colours on. This link is a page from AP 1709 Vol 1 which as everybody(?!) knows is the Westland Whirlwind maintenance manual.

Hope that clears things up for you, I know how frustrating these can be.

OTOH I see what you mean, the access cut out on the stbd side?

Mea Culpa, I apologise. I42 has pointed out what a c0ck I've been, the second image is NOT a Whirlwind, the fuselage L&R did not have entry panels.

I'm off for a bit of self flagellation

Kitbag,

No need to go to extremes.

Everyone makes mistakes and yours is serendipitous. Avionker has declared OH, so I propose we just just carry on with your second picture as the next cockpit.

I42, happy with that, as long as you know what it is, I think I very publicly proved that I don't!

After some research, I'm not 100% sure, but I'll plump for the Typhoon (the 24 cylinder one that is).

Edited to say that evansb has priority on the Typhoon.

If you mean the Boeing 314 Flying Boat? Sorry, no.

As the pic seems to show the aircraft in a hangar, am I correct in assuming this is a landplane rather than a flying boat?
