Short SB-5 - UK - Air Force

A secondary tail section for the prototype Shorts SB-5, on static display adjacent to the aircraft inside the Test Flight hangar at the excellent RAF Museum, Cosford. This tail section had a different tail configuration due to a technical dispute between the Royal Aircraft Establishment and English Electric Company during the design phase of this supersonic fighter. One suggested a low tail was best and another a high tail. Hence two rear fuselages for the test airframe (Canon 50D + 10-20 EX DC HSM)
