de Havilland Sea Vixen


You’ll see this image of a de Havilland Sea Vixen on page 3 of this week’s Flight International. We’ve chosen it as Pic of the Week.

The picture was taken as the aircraft was taxiing during Families Day in July earlier this year.

AirSpace user “effects” aka Frank Cross has entered this image in our Flight International front cover competition 2008 under the History – Birds From Bygone Eras.

Rummaging around in our archives I found these pictures, “first to be released for publication”, an advertisement for the titanine aircraft finishers used on the aircraft, a mini-profile about the aircraft.

This entry shows rocket projectiles attached to on the Sea Vixen. And as if that wasn’t enough, here’s a general arrangement bunch of diagrams before final configuration.
