    Lord. I would have guess a complete photoshop job. What the hell were they thinking. Broken up? You mean crashed, right. Sure that POS had crappy handling characteristics.

    From..Unreal Aircraft - Hybrid Aircraft - Westland P.12 Lysander - Delanne Tail

    "It was hoped the design would develop into an effective night-fighter, or at least a gunnery trainer. However, the Lysander turret night-fighter, despite successful flight trials, remained a one-off experiment."

    They also trialled the Lysander as a German invasion barge 'killer' using 2X20mm cannons attached to the wheel fairings.

    'Believe it or not' Matt, the flying characteristics were described as "easy and pleasant to fly up to 300mph", and the turret worked well.
