    For a research I'm conducting on aircrafts with contrarotating props I would appreciate very much if somebody could let me have a pic or image of subject aircraft, i.e. a Westland Wyvern 38 TMk3 trainer.
    I understand only one was built with registration number VZ/739.
    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Its not great Carson but here is the one I have;

    I notice your list includes the Wyvern TF.1 and S.4. There was also a Wyvern TF.2 which flew with a contra prop as well as the T.3.

    Well, bugger me if I didn't go and find another one! This is one of those 'official' jobs with the background removed to keep the location secret and was taken before the first flight.

    If I might be ever so slightly pedantic Carson its not 'Wyvern 38' but either Westland W.38 or Wyvern T.3. #

    I didn't expect so much Waynos (2 pics not just one) in such a short time...
    Thanks a million

    You're welcome Carson. I also have a drawing of the proposed S.5 but it didn't proceed far enough for your purposes. Did you know there was also a proposed 'Jet Wyvern' but of course that didn't have a contra prop at all.
