TSR2 - The Fourth Dimension
Availability: In stock
“All modern aircraft have four dimensions: Span, Length, Height and Politics. TSR2 simply got the first three right.” (Sir Sydney Camm)
The British Aircraft Corporation TSR2 was potentially the finest tactical strike and reconnaissance aircraft of its generation. Years ahead of its time, it was cancelled in 1965 by the Labour government after successful initial flight-testing. Almost 50 years later, the decision to cancel the TSR2 project is still surrounded by rumour, scandal and controversy. Among the legacies of TSR2 are the design and development of the Jaguar and Tornado aircraft but, if lobbyists, politicians and politics could have been kept out of the equation, who knows what this great aircraft project could have become.
Michael Rondot’s atmospheric portrayal captures the power and graceful lines of the TSR2 at high speed, with the characteristic black smoke trail from its Olympus engines.
The edition is limited to just 300 copies, each individually signed by TSR2 test pilot DON KNIGHT.
Remarque copies are also signed by three of the leading engineers/aerodynamicists who created the TSR2.
