Ahh the YB1 - Blackburns’ ‘ideas man’ was given a blurry photo of a Gannet, locked in the downstairs loo with a biro and told to ‘knock one out’ before lunch. The result, scratched out on several sheets of Izal, looking for all the world like one of those ‘approximate’ Chinese toy aeroplanes you used to get in seaside toyshops in the 70s. Bring back those hazy lazy crazy days when aeroplanes were designed by a comittee largely made up of the tea lady, Nigel from accounts and the warehouse cat. Standard. (unless of course you were pointed at one and told to get in - aren’t all FAA kites supposed to be lethal to their drivers?)
