As told by Simon
Miss Beryl Parkesson's entry at the 1946 Spontoon Speed Week air races:
A somewhat modified Supermarine Spitfire Mark 27...
Simon says: Really
techie aircraft fans
might recognise the propellor aerofoil.
Yes, some of those actually flew (sadly, not on Spitfire variants in 1946)
though they caused acute nausea and headache to ground crew.
Gotta love those spiralling circular shockwaves!
Hmm. Where did Beryl get that? It's Speed Week 1946. Was she meant to take it to Spontoon
or did she find it lying around on some secret testing airfield
and reason "nobody's using it right now ..." ?
