This was the second prototype of the TSR.2 (Tactical, Strike, Reconaissance). This example never flew as the project was cancelled by the Labour Government on Budget Day, 6th April, 1965 in favour of the inferior F111. TSR.2 was to perform, in the 1960s, a similar role to that now performed by the Tornado. Two airframes remain and the others together with all tooling were destroyed on Government orders, a travesty for the British aircraft industry. I, as a 12 year old can recall the public outcry.
