Gloster Rocket
« on: March 08, 2019, 12:14:10 pm »
Here you've got a drawing of the Gloster Rocket, a two-engined jet fighter project. It differs from drawings and photos of the design published mainly by Tony Butler.

Unfortunately I can't name the drawing's source. I copied it years ago from a publication, and now I've found it on my hard disk. Apperently I must have forgotten the publication's title.

Regards,
Piotr

Just goes to show how tubby a twin, fuselage mounted, centrifugal-flow jet engined aircraft would be . . .
