Armstrong Whitworth A.W.52G  RG324


                                  The A.W.52G was a one third scale model of a proposed four jet flying wing bomber first suggested
                                  in 1944.    Armstrong Whitworth had achieved a considerable amount of success in their studies of
                                  the laminar flow wing and were anxious to put their theories to practical testing. Although the end of
                                  hostilities put paid to further development of the bomber idea, a contract was received to produce
                                  two jet powered prototypes as possible mail carriers.    The above proof of concept glider was first
                                  flown on 3 March 1945, and was towed by a Whitley V.   The one and only prototype is presumed
                                  to have been scrapped.
