Your photo looks like the DIS IT with radial engines and four bladed props.

It is. Didn't notice that - and it was no success either!

Quite recently I have heard "sharra" used for a motor-coach in the West Riding (or South Yorkshire, if you must), though not perhaps by the young.

It is the DIS - - it had a whole slew of later names as they tweaked it before putting it into production but MiG 5 was one of them

Thanks!
Have this:



I have always felt sort of sorry for it - have that feeling, that the designers could have made it a better aircraft without too much effort.

Another disappointing mid 40's Blackburn aircraft - they lost the plot for a while clearly.

Here's one that I'd forgotten about totally even though quite a few were built IIRC.

About 200 built I think, not a type I've ever encountered in the flesh...

Looks a bit like a Deepak, but they didn't have a split windscreen.
