This Swordfish was built by Blackburn Aircraft at Sherburn-in-Elmet in July 1944. It had no service history and was acquired by Fairey Aviation. After several years storage at Ringway it was given to the airport fire service in August 1954 with the inevitable result that the historic aircraft was lost to posterity.

The sole FD-1 has just arrived from Fairey's Stockport factory on a trailer. The angled arrangement was to occupy less road width. VX350 made runs down Ringway's 4200 ft main runway in May 1950 before being taken to A&AEE at Boscombe Down for its first flight on 12 March 1951. Used for tests of the delta wing before being written off by an RAF pilot. Two other FD.1's were cancelled (VX357/364). From Fairey's many years ago.

The Spearfish was a large anti-submarine and naval bombing aircraft powered by a Bristol Centaurus piston engine. Only five were built before the programme was cancelled in favour of the upcoming turboprop Gannet. RN241 was the first of two completed at Fairey's Ringway facility. None of the type survives. From Faireys 60 years ago.
