The Fairey Delta 2 was the development platform for UK supersonic research. Its delta-wing, Rolls-Royce Avon engines and hinged-nose were all later deployed on the Concorde supersonic airliner. On 10-Mar-1956 FD-2 WG774 broke the world air-speed record by a staggering 300mph margin, flying at 1132mph, smashing the record set just twelve months previously by the American F100 Super Sabre.
