UK - England, December 27, 2013
Remark
Photographer
WG774 (cn F.9421) Originally built as a Fairey Delta 2 to investigate flight and control at transonic and supersonic speeds. In 1956 WG774 broke the World Air Speed Record (1,132 mph) and so became the first aircraft to exceed 1,000 mph in level flight. However, to teke full advantage of the aerodynamic properties of the wing the FD2 was modified into the BAC221 by featuring a longer highly swept wing, engine inlet configuration, a RR Avon RA engine, modified tail and undercarriage. She paved the way for Concorde - real aviation history at the FAA Museum.

WG774 (cn F.9421) Looking down the length of this compact aircraft used for investigations into high speed flight for the Concorde program. This aircraft was rebuilt from a Fairey Delta 2, which was the first aircraft to exceed 1000 mph in level flight.

Remark
Photographer
WG774 (cn F.9421) Godfrey Auty flew this modified Fairey Delta 2 at the 1964 Air Show. The Aircraft had a completely new Ogee shaped wing to test the supersonic handling of the proposed shape subsequently used for Concorde.

Yeovilton (YEO / EGDY)
UK - England, April 23, 2005
Remark
Photographer
WG774 (cn F.9421) In the 1940s Britain lagged far behind in the race for supersonic aviation. Fairey were commissioned to build this delta-winged prototype, powered by a Rolls-Royce Avon engine with afterburner. The cockpit hinged down to allow increased visibility for pilots during take-off and landing. Nicknamed the "mini-Concorde", this hugely significant aircraft was the direct predecessor of the famous Concorde supersonic airliner, appropriately parked alongside. One of only two Fairey Delta 2s ever built.
