During the summer of 1959, the first of the two Fairey FD.2 high speed research deltas, WD 774, was singled out for major modification to help with the high speed phase of Concorde wing development. Transferred from the RAE, Bedford to BAC's Filton facility, WD 774 underwent major surgery, to emerge four and a half years later as the BAC 221, as seen here at its roll-out. First flown in this guise with its new ogival wing on 1 May 1964, this machine returned to RAE, Bedford in May 1966, from where it continued to fly for the next eight and a half years.
Bell X-1A

The two second generation Bell X-1s photographed at Edwards AFB Flight Test Centre. Overshadowed by their famous precursor, these two aircraft were to do so much in pushing outwards and upwards the boundaries of speed and altitude during the early half of the 1950s.Three of these X-1s had been built, the X-1A, the X-1B and the X-1D, the X-1C project never having materialised. By chance, the first of this trio to fly was the X-1D, on 24 July 1951, but its life was brief, ending just under a month later, on 22 August, when it was destroyed following an in-flight explosion. Happily, its pilot. Lt. Col. Frank Everest had time to scramble back aboard the EB-50 prior to the X-1D's release. For its part, the X-1A, 48.1384, went on to reach a maximum speed of Mach 2.44, or 1.650 mph on 12 December 1953 and climbed to 90,440 feet on 26 August 1954. Like the X-1D before it, the X-1A was ultimately to be jettisoned by its mother, on 8 August 1955, following a similar onboard explosion, the cause of which was eventually pinpointed, extraordinarily enough, as a chemical reaction between the liquid oxygen and Ulmer leather strapping used within the rocket fuel system.
