A link poached from another site. A very interesting era for aviation.

Take a guess at the aircraft in the opening scene!

That's it Penman.

I remembered seeing one in an early 60's Ian Allan book! These days I couldn't even find it on a Miles' enthusiast site.

Hi
It's the first prototype G-AGOZ

If you click back to that site's main page there are all sorts of classic aircraft pics available.
