Object description

Twin-engine (Bristol Siddeley Olympus reheated turbojets), delta wing strike and reconnaissance aircraft, crew of 2. Development project cancelled April 1965.

History note

This was the fourth TSR-2 on the production line but unlike its three predecessors was not completed. Following cancellation, the aircraft was lent to the Cranfield Institute of Technology to be used in connection with postgraduate teaching. The technical advances of the last decade having superceded the technology of the TSR-2, the Ministry of Defence gave it to the Imperial War Museum in 1977, then it was moved to Duxford in March 1978.
