From pioneering jets to the principles of a few of todays such a lot winning plane, the experimental plane of the post-war years characterize the main interesting years of British aviation. This ebook tells their striking tales, of the triumphs and frustrations of experimentation on the leading edge of aeronautical layout.

The orth American F-86 had featured a variable incidence (VI) tailplane from the outset and upermarine's design office were of th opinion that the Type 510's general handling could be improved by such a unit. Furthermore, it would be another step along the road to developing the wift as a Service aircraft. In July 1953 WI06 was returned to upermarin , who had evolved an unconventional way of providing a VI installation on the existing airframe. A new hinged rear fuselage, capable of arcing through 4 degrees above and below the datum line, was installed, with the tailplane attached to the moveabl tail-cone.
Powered by a Der'went like the two 707As, WZ744 was flown up to Woodford for its manufacturers trials but, with the whole 698 programme at an advan ed stage of production, the 707C was unable to make any contribution to it development. However, the field of modern aircraft controls benefited greatly, as the RAE flew the air raft at Farnborough and Bedford for fourteen year.

With permission granted, Falk flew the same course to Farnborough as Esler the year before, for it to be on view for the remainder of the week. With the public relations exercise completed, VX790 left Farnborough to begin a concentrated programme of te t flying, and on 24 October it was flown to the A&AEE for their general asse ment. Thi wa the first time that the Establishment had been able to undertake such an exercise, a VX74 had nor lasted long enough. The considered opinion of A&AEE pilots was favourable, with the delta-wing geometry not presenting any unpleasant surprises.
