BAC TSR-2

The British Aircraft Corporation TSR-2 was a cancelled Cold War strike and reconnaissance aircraft developed RAF in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Some of the most advanced aviation technology of the period was incorporated in order to make it the highest-performing aircraft in the world.
