Photo Comment

The first of the two Sperrin test aircraft lands over the heads of the Farnborough SBAC show crowd after its display. Note unusual engine arrangement of two in each bay, one above the other. The lower port enlarged nacelle houses the powerful Gyron engine, which was being tested in the aircraft.
