    Ah, that's a Gloster Meteor prototype to experiment with the pilot using the prone position instead of upright in a seat. Research into G-Forces etc..

    I have a better photo of it if you are interested?

    Great stuff Paul. I was hoping to get to Cosford last weekend (and Duxford today !), but couldn't make it. It looks good now that it's been updated and everything brought inside. Must get there soon. Karl !!!
