One of two high speed supersonic research aircraft, 777 contributed to the Concord development programme, and in 1956 held the World's absolute speed record at 1132 mph. Seen here with her 'droop snoot' engaged, a feature which improved the pilots forward view at high angles of attack.

The FD-2 was Fairey's attempt to investigate flight and control characteristics of the delta-wing design at trans and supersonic speeds. This aircraft's sister plane (WG774) broke the world speed record in 1956 by more than 300 mph, quite an achievement considering the record had been set only a year previously by a F-100.
