according to the blurb in the program it was “an underpowered and singularly unsuccessful aircraft”.  classic british design therefore

this hassock was sent in by top regular reader phil.  he explains it thus:

My girlfriend came third in an embroidery competition for
Livery companies, organized by the Broders Livery Company(embroiders), attached
is a picture of the second place entry. I am sure that this has to be ,at least
a candidate for hassock of the week

I think that this is going to be my one opportunity in life to
say that, and as I am never one to miss an opportunity, I had to take it

Thanks Phil !
