how fast wil it go? When was it first produced?

It was a 50's design and was the main, fast jet trainer for the RAF, until the advent of
the Hawk . However, not all pilots could fit into it and the Hunter trainers were used for
such pilots . It's most remarkable feature was its rate of roll, at 400 degrees per

I met a Chieffie at Halton that cursed Gnats mainly because you had to take the whole rear
fuselage off to do an engine change. The display team was called the Yellowjacks.

Tony - 10x better than I could probably do - my tripod would probably have fallen over!
2Wallace Shackleton (12 February 2007 - 10:28 CET)
Tony, it's just as good as Martin's shot. It shows a fair deal of movement and the
painting with light makes for a more interesting picture.

Nice One! Love the angle, note the missing paint near the tail section.

I did my PPL solo qualifying cross country in this in 1975 with Channel Aviation:
Guernsey-Vannes-Dinard-Guernsey. How sad.

Aye right! When I go to LHR I don't even see the sun, never mind a sunset. Stunning shot.

Very beautiful birds, the early 747 models.

Prefer the "Dash 8" - Well the short ones anyway, make a nice change from the
stretched ones - or "Stick Insects" (in constant supply, from FlyBE )as they
are known locally, in Scotland.

This is an airline I really want to photograph - it would help if I could get out to an
airport as I've just finished 60 hours on-call.

Lovely - great that they are still flying.
