Slingsby T-48: First studies for the specification X197T (dated 21 december 1959) concerning a sharp delta wing experimental glider. This program was later modified (ER-197D) by adding a small turbojet and the Slingsby project was transferred to Handley Page which built the HP-115 for the Concorde program (1st flight: 17 august 1961).
Any 3V drawing of this Slingsby T-48 available?

In Aeroplane Monthly March 1994 was an article about the HP.115, with a small perspective
drawing of the originally proposed version based on "a wooden glider". Maybe this drawing
still shows the Slingsby design ?

Hi Victor,

it looks like Type-573 only as I think.
