Photo Comment

This One-Eleven was retained by the BAC/BAe throughout its 29-year flying career for use as a development and test aircraft for the production variants and for testing technical innovations. One such deveopment is alluded to by the 'Fly-By-Light Flight Control Technology' titles where it was thought that if the flight control inputs were driven by light rather than electrical inputs, then these would be much harder for any putative enemy to jam.
