The design was delayed several years while Black and Decker came up with an electric drill big enough to mount the wind tunnel model on.

Ah I see the problem, when we sent out the specs demanding a radar cross section equivalent to 10th of the current aircraft, we never envisaged that BAe would simply shrink the aircraft and skimp over the fact it was to be manned.

Not a caption:

Is that John Young in picture of the same wind tunnel tests below below? Sure looks rather like him and that looks like a NASA patch on his flying suit.
