Concept Aircraft Type 221

Concept Aircraft Type 221

Go back to the records from the 1955 map.

G1888. This test aircraft type 221, with its Concorde style wings, is being pulled out of its aircraft hangar for trials. Outside you can see a number of men watching and wondering how she will perform. A photographer is kneeling on the ground taking a photograph from the rear. There are several cars parked nearby this is during the late 1950's, an A35 van, a small Austin shooting break, a Ford 100E and an Austin A40. Behind them looks like a Ford 105, an Austin A40 and an Austin A55 Cambridge. A Coles crane awaits at the hangar door.
