Description

RBC DH108 Swallow 90mm Kit

Three DH108 ‘Swallow’ research aircraft were constructed to Air Ministry Specification E1/45 and E11/45 to investigate the low and high-speed characteristics of tailess, swept wing aircraft. The first of these (TG283) made its first flight at Woodbridge on 15th May 1946. Designed by John Carver Meadows Frost (who went on to design the Avro-Canada CF-100), the layout of the 108 resembled the configuration of the Messerschmitt ME163 Komet, a rocket-powered interceptor designed during World War II. www.baesystems.com
