Lots of torque, eh? Engine could dislodge from the mounts.

I believe the bipe is Norwegian, but definitely NOT a Hawker Fury. Fin and rudder shape is wrong , but concept similar to a number of Fury contemporaries. I suspect it is indigenous, with a British engine and prop.

You're right as rain. What it actually is, is The Norwegian SA-14E Jaktfalken II.

It's pretty obvious the airframe is pure Lockeed Vega.

No luck trying to cut and paste a photo from Google Map so I'll post a link instead.
This is at the Manchester UK airport. I don't know what it is; you tell me.

Not far from this plane is a hanger where a Concord is on display.

You're right, of course. I noticed them but I had no idea there were still any Comets around, let alone being revived as this one obviously had been.
Thanks. I play with Google map and satellite view a lot and stumble on things like this from time to time.
Is there a way to download a photo from there that you know of? Or should I just post a link to that particular place like I did this one?

IMHO, posting a link is fine. I'm really not tech savvy enough to give guidance on how to "grab" images.

Good find!

Hawker Siddeley Nimrod. A British maritime patrol aircraft that was indeed developed from the Comet airframe.
