The British Aircraft Corporation TSR-2 was a cancelled Cold War strike and reconnaissance aircraft developed RAF in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It was designed to penetrate a well-defended forward battle area at low altitudes and very high speeds, and then attack high-value targets in the rear with nuclear or conventional weapons. Some of the most advanced aviation technology of the period was incorporated in order to make it the highest-performing aircraft in the world.

Aviation Photo #0979918: BAC TSR-2 - UK - Air Force

Seen on the active ramp prior to being moved to the £25 million AirSpace Museum hangar. The aircraft had just been rolled out after completion of an 18 month restoration programme. The aircraft was the forth production airframe and was incomplete when the project was cancelled. It was allocated to the Cranfield Institute of Technology prior to being transferred to the Imperial War Museum. - Photo taken at Duxford (EGSU) in England, United Kingdom on December 16, 2005.

The TSR-2 was a strike and reconnaissance aircraft developed by the British Aircraft Corporation for the RAF in the late 1950s and early 1960s. 23 were built (including 2 static/fatigue test airframes, not all were completed, only 1 flew). Only two incomplete examples survived the hasty destruction that followed the politically motivated project cancellation.
