Without any hesitation whatsoever my most favourite aircraft in the world. Preserved in the wonderful Solent Sky museum in Southampton. The city was the home of Supermarine and also hosted the 11th Schneider Trophy race in 1929. Britain won the race with N248's sister S.6A, N248 set a world-record speed of 332mph. The observant will notice the non-standard wing-struts - temporarily fitted for her suspended display at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed meeting.
