Hi,

I am sorry for my mistake that I spoke before about this aircraft
as twin boom cargo aircraft,here;
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,449.msg7535/highlight,miles+m+58+twin+boom.html#msg7535
but I found it in a site and may be misprint.
The Miles M.58 was single seat twin boom mixed powered fighter
project,powered by one 500 hp piston engine and togther with
the Power Jets W2/700 turbojet engine,it had a mid wing,twin
tail fins and two HS cannon were mounted in the forward end of
the tail booms and the rear wing was between the two fins in the
middle and above the level of the fuselage.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Jets_W.2
"The Power Jets W.2 was a British turbojet engine designed by Frank Whittle and Power Jets (Research and Development) Ltd. Like the earlier Power Jets W.1, the "trombone" configuration featured a simple double-sided centrifugal compressor, reverse-flow combustion chambers and an air-cooled axial-flow turbine section."

"W.2/700 New 'Type 16' compressor diffuser, new compressor casing, plus improved compressor rotor sent over from GE, all combined to produce 80% compressor efficiency, Nimonic 80 turbine blades, and a static thrust of 2,000 pounds-force (8.9 kN) at 16,700 rpm. By 1944 producing 2,485 pounds-force (11.05 kN) at a pressure ratio of 4:1 with airflow of 47.15 lb/s from same size engine as W.1. Sfc, 1.05 lb/(hr lbf) with jet pipe temperature of 647°C. Flight-trialled reheat in Meteor I EE215/G increasing top speed from 420 mph to 460 mph. Also trialled with aft ducted fan. Flown to 505 mph at 30,000 feet in E.28/39 W4046/G."
