    Greetings Guys, Gals;


    Today lets look at another variation of the Bristol BeauFighter.

    ..... Toward the mid. of the Second World War the Merlin engine manufacturing
    was not a critical as it had been in 1939-1942, with the United Kingdom, and the
    United States making the engine. This let some of the Aircraft Manufactures
    to experiment with new designs.

    One of the designs to come out of this time period was the BeauFighter II.
    She was powered with two Merlin XX engines.

    I can only imagine, but, I bet she was a real fast A/C. With the new engines
    aerodynamically, her lines are excellent.
