This drawing is from RAF Flying Review. I had the entire page at one time, but not anymore. It's not all I'm missing!. Who knows what model this is or even if it is Hawker?

That looks like an all weather development of the plane shown in the appendix of Tony Butler's book on British fighters. I'm at the office, so I don't have access to my books right now, but there is a plane in that book which is a single seat day fighter with a shock cone inlet in the nose and six cannons (three in each wing) IIRC with an almost identical wing and tail. I can check when I get home.

Greetings All -

I was recently given a couple of dozen tatter issues of Flying Review International that are from the early-mid '60s. In Vol. 20 No.1, there's an article called "The Frustrating 'Fifties" which covers a number of Hawker designs. Attached is P.1092 which I do not recall seeing before. Anyone have additional info ont he design and the Specification it was intended for?

Enjoy the Day! Mark
