Photo Comment

The Javelin was a T tail delta wing all weather interceptor and fighter that first flew in 1951 and a total of 436 were built. Early flight testing was beset with problems and the type did not enter service until 1956 and most were short lived in service. This example is seen at the Yorkshire Air Museum.
