Short Brothers SC.1

The Short SC.1 was the first British fixed-wing VTOL jet . It was developed by Short Brothers. Powered by an arrangement of five Rolls-Royce turbojets, four for vertical flight and one for horizontal flight. The SC.1 was the first British fixed-wing VTOL aircraft to transition to horizontal flight and used fly by wire technology.
Two prototypes were built and used for flight testing between 1957 and 1971. Research from this program led to the Harrier jump jet.

Another cracking piece of work on an unusual aircraft that helped one of the greatest designs ever.

Re: Short Brothers SC.1

Gray, I noticed you like unique aircraft. Have you looked into the Swiss N-20 fighter? This may be a good future project.

Fishjay, I hadn't seen that one before. That's a cool looking little fighter. Might just make a good future project.
