Photographer's Remark

Named after a college at Oxford, the Balliol advanced trainer was intended as a Harvard replacement but only saw brief service with the RAF, powered by the Merlin piston engine although the Mamba turboprop had been intended. The Sea Balliol had folding wings and an arrester hook, and 30 examples were built for the FAA.
