Another facefaq  event, shame but I will not go there due to the incessant demand that I sign up.  Not a chance in hell.

That's fair enough but it does not stop you viewing material the museum has posted there. A quick click on 'not now' and away you go.

 Clifton started with the small 200hp concept and used that as the starting point for three larger concepts powered by a 2500hp engine (Griffon or Sabre, I guess). These were a fighter weighing 8750lb,
