The Saunders-Roe SR.53 (1957) was a British prototype interceptor aircraft of mixed jet and rocket propulsion developed for the Royal Air Force by Saunders-Roe in the early 1950s.[2] Although its performance was promising, the need for such an aircraft was soon overtaken by surface-to-air missile development and the project was cancelled after 56 test flights.
