Yes, but the issue that particular pilot had was nothing to do with the surf. His problem was that his lifejacket inflated automatically when he flipped over, thus preventing him from undoing his...

I never saw the BAC.221 fly, but I did see it trying to fly at Farnborough in 1964 when it aborted its take-off on the Saturday!

Edit: (and of course that aircraft was never in RAF service either)

I'd be surprised. I worked on the RAF Dominies in the 80s and I reckon they did well to last just over 40 years. I'm sure there are finite lives in terms of Fatigue Index and Pressurisation cycles...

The majority of CL-44s were CL-44D4s which built (not modified) with the swing tail. The only ones built without it were the 12 CC-106 Yukons for the RCAF. The all passenger CL-44Js for Loftleidir...

Would BAe provide the necessary Design Authority support? Only at a high price, I reckon, but even so I can't see how it could be cost-effective unless they are going to get several going.

This is very sad.

I saw elsewhere that Richard had done 5,700 hours (!!) in this aircraft that he built in the 90s. That's a lot of flying, and probably a lot more than the designers ever...

If it did, it was THE Rotodyne, as they only completed one (XE521).
