Short S.A.2. Sturgeon  TT 2       VR371


                                           Originally built to a  carrier-borne reconnaissance bomber spec, the Sturgeon appeared too late
                                           to see action in WW II and the 26 odd aircraft built were relegated to target towing and aerial
                                           gunnery training roles.    It was powered by two 2,080 hp Rolls Royce  Merlin 140s driving
                                           contra-rotating  airscrews.    VR371 was the fourth prototype (and second Mk 2).
