An anonymous Folland 43/37 fitted with a Sabre engine - February 1941. This ungainly aircraft had an Italian look about it, with a touch of Hurricane thrown in.
The first Folland 43/37, P1774, photographed in August 1941 fitted with a Sabre II.
P1775 again, this time in its first guise with a Hercules VIII, March 1942. The glazings for the flight test observers can be seen behind and below the cockpit.
Further view of Fo.108 P1774 fitted with a Sabre II (Sabre I ???) and photographed in August 1941. Note window behind cockpit for observers' cabin.
The anonymous Folland 43/37 Engine-test Monoplane fitted with Napier-Sabre liquid-cooled power-unit. The view taken in February 1941.
