    You will find as attachment a listing (which I hope it should be fairly complete) of aircrafts with contrarotating props together with year of first flight.
    I edited a similar handwritten listing on post #2809 page 188 of "aircraft identification V"
    Should anybody find more types I have overlooked, he's more than welcome to let me know

    Found this two profiles on some artist's web site. Note that this is purely fictional, but wouldn't be cool if it was real?

    Hi pbfoot
    following your picture of the Fairey Battle with contrarotating props I have performed some reading this evening and found out that the engine installed in the Fairey Battle was a Fairey P24 Monarch (K9370) which was tested in flight in 1939.
    Please read the following very interesting and comprehensive thread edited by Antoni to whom all credit go:
    Fairey Battle evaluated in the USA - Key Publishing Ltd Aviation Forums.
    Cheers and thanks again

    And not forgetting co-axial helicopters which in a sense are Contra-prop Aircraft (well you did not specify aeroplane did you ?)

    Hi Cromwell,
    thanks very much for your attention to my thread. The avro Shackleton is included in my first list as per post#1 in the 4th position.
    I'm considering helicopters but for this I'll have to edit a separate thread, anyway thanks for giving me a starter...

    OK the Shack was a repeat - its a fair cop

    Mind you it is interesting that the PR Spit is flying with an Ex Shack Griffon and Contra mechnism. It might even be using Shack props too -
